Misalignment of Columns

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.

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.
