Oracle SQL: selecting integer values and returning them right padded and left justified

Hi,
this might be an easy one: I'd like to select an integer data type, right pad with blanks so that there are 10 characters total and left-justify the output.

Example:
Select myInteger from table;
Should come out:
|999       |
(without the pipes but left justified and padded with blanks.

Thanks!

Just use rpad.

Note: I added the pipes so you can see the padding.
-----------------------
drop table tab1;
create table tab1 ( col1 number );

insert into tab1 values(999);
commit;

select '|' || rpad(col1,10,' ') || '|' from tab1;
