    I'm trying to set up a decimal tab inside one cell in a table and it is completely baffling me as to why I can't make it work! Table is aligned top left, font is aligned left, I did find out that decimal tabs will also apply to colons for some reason?? So I removed the colons and tried doing it without - as you can see, still a problem, with or without. I want the font to be left aligned on the left side of the cell, and the numbers to be tab aligned to the right. How do I get this to work? OS is Windows 10, using subscription version of Office.

    Have you set the cell to be "Numbers"

    Sorry, I misread, and was thinking Excel.
    Try and make the text within the table cell right justified.

    Oh good, thought I was completely blind as I couldn't find a way to do that - wouldn't be the first time! :) Unfortunately right justified doesn't work either - screenshot of the result attached.
