I have a requirement to have a string of dots go across a column and stop at a border. This is like a technique commonly used in table of contents . I tried to concatenate several hundred dots to the end of the string and I get the exclamation point (truncation character) at the end of the column.

Does any one have a technique to print dots following text across a page and stop at the end of the column?

What format is the report.

The technique will probably be different for each.

Only works if you use a fixed font

 TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
COMPUTE TEXTSTRG/A50=COUNTRY; NOPRINT
COMPUTE LASTPOS/I3= ARGLEN(50,TEXTSTRG,'I3'); NOPRINT
COMPUTE NODOTS/I3= 50 - LASTPOS; NOPRINT
COMPUTE OUTSTRING/A50=OVRLAY(TEXTSTRG, 50, '..................................................', NODOTS , LASTPOS + 1, 'A50');
COMPUTE ONPAGE/I3= LAST ONPAGE + 1; AS ''
BY COUNTRY AS '' NOPRINT
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF
ON TABLE SET STYLE *

END
