If you know the maximum nuber of spaces you will need, then

   substring ('            ', 1, n)

will give you n spaces - just make sure the first argument is longer
than you will ever need.

If you are trying to pad to a fixed width w, then you can do:

   substring ( concat($data, '          '), 1, $w)
