How can I generate text filler


I am setting up a database that will, as part of it's functionality, allow me to print bank checks onto pre-printed blank checks. I've figured most everything else out except how to generate a variable row of asterisks "*" after the amount line of the check. For example, if the amount line reads "Three Hundred and 00/100" I want to fill in the remaining space of the line with asterisks ************************ to the "dollars" (pre-printed on checks). I know how many characters I need total, and I can use the Length function to determine the number of characters I have and then figure out how many characters I need to generate. I just don't know how to tell it to generate x number of "*". Any help would be appreciated.
