I am trying to format some text using the .padright(#) command but the command is not adding the additional space at the end of the text.  Can someone show me where I may be going wrong?

When I debug the code the contents of the variable is

"Lunesta 3 mg Tab"

instead of

"Lunesta 3 mg Tab    "
firsttab = 20;
                    if (rsdatarec.rxdata.RxItemName == null)
                    {
                        RxItemNameLen = 0;
                        fmtRxITemName = "                    ";
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        RxItemNameLen = rsdatarec.rxdata.RxItemName.Length;
                        firstpad = firsttab - RxItemNameLen;
                        fmtRxITemName = rsdatarec.rxdata.RxItemName.PadRight(firstpad);
                        
                    }

you should do

 fmtRxITemName = rsdatarec.rxdata.RxItemName.PadRight(20);

there is no need to do
firstpad = firsttab - RxItemNameLen;

fmtRxITemName = rsdatarec.rxdata.RxItemName.PadRight(rsdatarec.rxdata.RxItemName.length+1);
