set the horizontal position where text will be added in JTextarea?

Hi,

Is there a way to set the horizontal position where text will be added in JTextarea?

I have:
First, Middle, Last name and then Company name.
Ex.
Jay F. Bar                                 Some Company
Ron  G.  McDonald               Some Other Company

I can't get the company names to line up using "\t" - can I set the insertion point for the company name to some line position?

Thanks

Save yourself a lot of hassle (you can only do what you're attempting by using an ugly monospaced font anyway) by using a JTable

Can a JTable be added to a JScrollPane?

How would that be done with a monospaced font?

How about in the JTextarea with a monospaced font?  I actually like Couriernew.

Well in that case just append each line using String.format
