Is there a way to fill cell with certain number of characters.

Per example in cell A1 I want to fill it with 60 characters I don't care if they are numbers or letter. In cell A2 I want 20 characters, in cell A3 I want 8 characters.

I have many cells that I need to fill; so do you know a quick way of doing this.

Thanks
