The asterisk character is used to indicate that the contents of the cell should
be padded to length - that is should fill the cell completely. The pad
character is the character that follows the asterisk in the formatting string.

Take a look here
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/number-format-codes-HP005198679.aspx
- under the Text and Spacing heading there is a sub-heading 'Repeating
Characters', expand this and you should see an explanation of how the asterisk
is used.
