Number Manipulation - adding a space and two zeros at the end

Hi

I want to edit a number like this 21 25 00 10 in cell H11.  

If the this number is less than 10 digits long (or 14 digits with the spaces), I want to add a space and two zeros at the end of 21 25 00 10 to get 21 25 00 10 00.   Then, I want to store the new value in the cell H11 if possible or in another cell if not possible for reference later.

Which function or functions would I use to convert this number from 10 digits to 12 (or from 14 digits to 17 digits with the spaces)?

Thank you for looking at this question

To make it 14 digits use this formula in "another" cell

=A1&RIGHT(" 00 00 00 00",14-LEN(A1))

change the 14 to 17 or to 21.

Thanks SSAQIBH

It works - If I want to make it conditional how would that be coded

IF A1 LEN <12, A1&RIGHT(" 00 00 00 00",14-LEN(A1)), false condition ?

Thanks

You do not have to use an if statement.

If the number is 14 it will take care of 14 as well as 11 as well as 7.
If the number is 17 it will take care of 17 as well as 14 as well as 11.
If the number is 21 it will take care of 21 as well as 17 as well as 14.

Yes but it adds extra zeros to the right which I don't know if that will work for my application.
