    Aligning Values Along a Row of Cells in a Table (2000)

    Does anyone know how to type quantities in the rightmost column(QUANTITA') of the table in the attached file so that they're aligned with the items inserted in the other two columns?

    Method 1
    Display formating characters (tabs, paragraph marks etc.) and simply type the right number of these to get separation.

    Method 2
    Reformat the table to have one row for each single item - change the borders to be invisible for the innermost cells.

    Thank you Andrew.
    1) I've tried typing those formatting characters, but still the rows in the rightmost column remain disaligned with the corresponding rows in the other columns.
    2) How do you reformat the table to have one row for each single item?

    Could you post the corrected Word file?

    Hi,

    In Andrew's absence, try the attached.

    The way I did it was to copy the cells in Column B into Column C, then zero all values. I also changed the para formatting slightly in the cells with asterisks and changed the cell alignment thoughout to 'top'.

    Cheers

    Try: Format -> Paragraph -> Line Size -> Exactly
    It should autofill with the correct point size. Apply formatting to all lines (paragraphs) that need to be aligned.

    You may have to play with the number that you set the Line Size to. If too small, the characters will be clipped.

    You will probably have to apply the formatting to all lines (paragraphs) in the cell above the ones you want aligned.
