the problem isn't the result of the output. The problem is the view of the output. I've get a problem with the tab charecter.

i'm using

for ...

do
echo "$value1\t\t$value2\t\t$value3" >>myfile
.
.
.
done

but the view of myfile is't look like as i expect. when i look the file with more or vi,the file looks like as follow

Value Value2 value3
valued value value
valuefdaf value valuefafa

but i want it to looks like as follow
Value value2 value3
valued value value
valuefdaf value valuefafa


thanks.

but i found how i explain. just thinking there is no the .(dot) charecter between value.

the view of the result.

Value....Value2.......... value3
valued.....value............ value
valuefdaf...... value......... valuefafa



the view, i want to create.

Value......Value2........value3
valued.....value.........value
valuefdaf..value.........valuefafa
