Misalignment of Columns

Question:
I try to align numeric numbers in columns (to be right-justified). Hwvr, some of the numbers don't right-justify very well. In my example, most of these numbers hve 2 digits. Typically, numbers with 3-digits srick out a little to the right. Alpha values also stick out to the right. I can't figure out why. Can you help me? This is my first VB project at work. Don't want to mess up this opportunity.

Answer:
I'll assume that your code works since you are getting some output. What font are you using? I would imagine that you are using a proportional font like Times or something else that doesn't use a fixed width like Courier New. Try it with a fixed-width font and I would imagine that things will line up.
