In some stacks, specially before the dataGrid, I right aligned using format (see "format" in the dictionary
For example, the following handler :
set the itemDel to tab
put fld "fData" into theData
repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines in theData
repeat with y = 1 to the number of items in line x of theData
if item y of line x of theData is a number then
put format("%13s",item y of line x of theData) into item y of line x of theData
put theData into fld "fData"
In this example, "13" is the number of chararacters which is possible in a column.
To use right align in this way it is necessary to use monospaced font in the field.

> I have a very simple field with just two columns. I want the alignment of the first one to be left, and the second one to be right. A data grid is overkill, otherwise I’d go with that. I couldn’t remember if, with all the new field changes, that was added or not. I can’t seem to find any obvious properties, but I could be missing something.
