# Solved Mulplication table using for,nexted loops December 3, 2012 at 16:22:12

 I need a properly spaced Multiplication Table using For,Next loops that I can easily whip up on my QBasic. It needs to use If/Then/Elses for the spacing issue. Multiplication table of 10x10.It needs to be able to evenly space between single digit, double digit, and triple digit numbers.I have somewhat the body for it, but I can't figure out the spacing.Typing from memory here...CLSFOR J = 1 TO 10 FOR I = 1 TO 10 IF X * Y < 10 THEN PRINT X * Y; " "; (<-- 2 spaces) END IF IF X * Y > 10 AND X * Y < 100 THEN PRINT X * Y; " "; (<-- 1 space) END IF ELSE PRINT X * Y; END IF NEXT INEXT JENDPlease tell me how to correctly code this, and how to fix the spacing issue!!!If you could type what your program looked like with the For,Next and If/Then/Elses, that would be greatly appreciated.Doesn't count indentations on the loops, but they are there!!!

 The simplest "tried and true" method is to add a bunch of spaces (to left, for right-just, to right for left-justified) after converting the number to a string.Here is a generic Basic program (qb, vb, or gw)```'=== begin BASIC program FOR I = 1 TO 10 FOR J = 1 TO 10 PRINT RIGHT\$(" " + STR\$(J * I), 4); NEXT J PRINT NEXT I '===== end basic code ```If (pun intended!) you really want to use IF statements, then this might do:`FOR J=1 TO 10SP\$=""IF I*J<100 THEN SP\$=" "IF I*J<10 THEN SP\$=" "PRINT SP\$;I*J;...`
