Let us explain!
The [ctb] code clears any existing Tabs which you have set.
[stbS:A:P] This sets Tabs where:
S = The Tab Stop sequence number. e,g 1, 2, 3, 4.
A = Tab Alignment where l = Left, r = Right and d = Decimal
P = Position or Column number.
Therefore [stb1:l:10] means the 1st Tab is left justified and at column 10.
The [#S] code tells DBT which Tab position to align the text to, and so [#1] means tab to Stop position 1.
