Using TAB char (9) to align text column

I'm trying to do a text calculation field to make a custom list of FusionCode with Description. I want the Description to start aligned on the ligne no matter what is the length of the preceding FusionCode.

 

Example:

%%%ABC%%%                    Description

%%%QWERTYABC%%%     Description

...

 

So I do the following calculation: Length ( FusionCode ) / 4 (4 is the length of a tab char expressed in space) and I add a char(9) until the total length of the FusionCode is 32.

But here what I got (see image). At the end of each line, you will find two number. The first is the length of the FusionCode (starting and ending with %%%), the second one is the number of TAB charactere between FusionCode and Description. I can't explain why sometime the Description text is NOT aligned.

 

Any clue?
