Custom Formatting Excel with spaces

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I have a report which must go out with a specific amount of spaces per column.

For example:
The first column would be "lastname, firstname" and there would be 46 total characters until the next column.

I tried using the special formatting, but it doesn't seem to work with spaces.  Only characters.  Unless I am missing something.
