Use the tabs feature.

Type "date" and then press the tab key.
Now, goto the "Type>Tabs" menu
In the little box that appears, first click once above the number to set a tab position. Next, in the "Leader:" box type the character you wish to proceed your tab, in this case an underscore "_" and then press the tab key again. Now you can drag your tab position (the little arrow) along the ruler to set the length of your line.

It is still text. Highlight the section you want with your text tool and change the color to the black swatch.
