Word: Decimal Tabs Inside Tables Allow Alignment of Numbers

PSS ID Number: Q36487 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 3.0, 3.01, 3.02, 4.0, 5.0, 5.1


When you place a decimal tab within a table, with no other tabs set in that cell, Microsoft Word for the Macintosh automatically moves the insertion point to that tab for more easily entering numbers.


By design Word adds an invisible tab character to the beginning of the cell.


Note that when data is imported from Microsoft Excel, by default the data’s paragraph format is right-aligned (default Excel format for numbers). Therefore, when you insert a decimal tab into a table of cells imported from Excel, the tab may not automatically align until you apply left alignment to those cells.
