Hi All Sorry but after posting i noticed values are not aligned with Decimal pls assume its aligned around decimal. I am trying to post it again
if you want to do it you are probably going to have to split all of the numbers by the deciaml and place them in two table cells with the one being right aligned and the other left aligned Or you are going to have to add characters that match the background color in front of the strings so they line up correctly like you just added the *'s Eric

I think the first choice is the way to go. Adding characters to attempt to line the items up will not work very well since browsers usually use proportionally spaced fonts. You'd have to enclose the numbers in code tags or use a fixed width font like Courier to get them to display correctly. Tom Blough

Hi Eric n Tom, Thanks for your reply, I am gettinfg these values from database then how I can seperate them and put in two different cells? Can you give me some small example Eric or just an Idea. thanks for all ur help.
It will display.. 2 : 5 This should allow you to do what you want. Like someone else here said, you can put each component into a separate table cell. The first cell could contain a and the decimal point, and the second cell could contain a and be set to align left. [ April 01, 2004: Message edited by: Jason Menard ]
What database are you using. If you are using Oracle, you can use the to_char() function and use a format that will place leading zeros in the front. as in to_char(value,'fm0####.#0') the "fm" makes sure that it is trimmed and there are no blank spaces. Mark
