I seem to be very close to an answer but this is getting me.
Windows form - VS2010 - C#
The first problem is that I'm dealing with tabulated data in the wrong kind of control but I'm stuck for output options (3rd party)

I have to out a grid of info
that is basically an hourly rate * hours worked (for the purpose of the question I've kept the numbers basic)
The code shows what I have and the image shows what I'm trying to output
Problem being that I only want to have the start of each row show the x hrs/wk and need a new line after each dollar value has been outputted.
int hoursPerWeek, payRate;
            for (payRate = 5; payRate <= 10; payRate++)
            {
                for (hoursPerWeek = 10; hoursPerWeek <= 20; hoursPerWeek++)
                {
                    string prefix = hoursPerWeek + " hrs/week: ";
                    memo.AppendText(prefix);
                    prefix = "";
                    memo.AppendText((hoursPerWeek * payRate) + "\t\t");
                    if (payRate == 10)
                    {
                        memo.AppendText("\n");
                    }
                }

I tried this - see the code.

Output:


10 hrs/week:             50            60            70            80            90            100            
11 hrs/week:             55            66            77            88            99            110            
12 hrs/week:             60            72            84            96            108            120            
13 hrs/week:             65            78            91            104            117            130            
14 hrs/week:             70            84            98            112            126            140            
15 hrs/week:             75            90            105            120            135            150            
16 hrs/week:             80            96            112            128            144            160            
17 hrs/week:             85            102            119            136            153            170            
18 hrs/week:             90            108            126            144            162            180            
19 hrs/week:             95            114            133            152            171            190            
20 hrs/week:             100            120            140            160            180            200            

StringBuilder memo = new StringBuilder();
            int hoursPerWeek, payRate;
            for (hoursPerWeek = 10; hoursPerWeek <= 20; hoursPerWeek++) 
            {
                string prefix = hoursPerWeek + " hrs/week: "+ "\t\t";
                memo.Append(prefix);
                for(payRate = 5; payRate <= 10; payRate++)
                {
                    memo.Append((hoursPerWeek * payRate) + "\t\t");
                    if (payRate == 10)
                    {
                        memo.AppendLine( );
                    }
                }
            }
            System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(memo.ToString());

You may need some formatting if you want to align columns properly but this is a bit different story...
