In one stack I have a field whose lines are composed of items
delimited by tab.
In order to get each item right aligned I use the following (that I
learned from this list thanks to Jacque Landman Gay if I well
put "8" into theWidth -- or another number of course
REPEAT WITH y = 1 to the number of lines in uneVente --
"uneVente" is a local variable
set the itemdel to tab
REPEAT WITH x = 1 to the number of items in line y of uneVente
IF item x of line y of uneVente is a number THEN
put item x of line y of uneVente into theText
put char 1 to theWidth of theText into theText --
truNcate long strings
put char 1 to (theWidth - the length of theText) of
" " before theText
put theText into item x of line y of uneVente
Then I put « uneVente » into the field.
Not sure in your case but might help (?)
