Default Retaining formatting on a single line after entering data in field

I want to creat a form. The top line has the following:

Amount TEXT
DATE

Amount = A field (numeric) that is linked to other fields in the form. I
want this justified left on the line.

TEXT = Equals a fixed text I would want centered no matter how many digits
are in the Amount field on the left.

I would like the "DATE" field (which is linked to another field in the
document) to be justified to the right.

How can I create a form where entering 7 or 8 digits instead of 5 or 6
in the "amount" field won't alter the formatting of "text" or "date"?

I should mention I have only been using Word for a few weeks! Have
been using an old DOS WP up to now for 15+ years.

Thanks.
