    period or dot fill (Office 2000)

    I have a document with 3 "columns" as opposed to cells in a table. I wish to fill in between two words on a line within the column with a string of periods or dots that force the right word to the right side of the column and the left word to the left side of the column. This is analogous to to the way an index or table of contents looks. Is this possible in Word 2000 or Word 2003?
    TIA

    Note or write down the column width in the Format | Columns dialog.
    Select all text (or all text in the section of the document that has three columns).
    Select Format | Tabs...
    Enter the column width in the Tab stop position box.
    Select Right as alignment.
    Select the dotted leader.
    Click OK.

    On each line, enter the left-aligned text, then press tab and enter the right-aligned text. Press Enter to go to the next paragraph.
