    RPAD

    Right pads a string with spaces or specified characters to reach the number of chracters specified as a parameter.

    Syntax

    RPAD(base_expression varchar, length int64, pad_expression varchar) → varchar

    • base_expression: The expression to pad.
    • length: The number of characters to return.
    • pad_expression: Characters to pad the base_expression with.

    Examples

    select RPAD('dremio', 9, '!')
    -- dremio!!!
    
    select RPAD('base_', 9, 'expression')
    -- base_expr
    

    RPAD(base_expression varchar, length int64) → varchar

    • base_expression: The expression to pad.
    • length: The number of characters to return.

    Examples

    select RPAD('dremio', 9)
    -- dremio   
    

    Usage Notes

    If pad_expression is not specified, then the base_expression will be padded with spaces. If length is less than the length of the base_expression, the base_expression will be truncated to the length. If the length + the length of the base_expression is less than the length of the base_expression + the length of the pad_expression, only the subset of the characters from the pad_expression required to fill the length will be appended to the base_expression.
