Default how do I align numbers and text within a table column?

I've created a table with 3 columns and 3 rows. One of the boxes contains
text and further in the line/row a number. However, each line of text/numbers
are not lining up with the numbers in the previous lines/rows. Please help!
Thank you!

Within a table, use Ctrl-Tab.

Great - that's good to know about the Ctrl+Tab. However, this lines up my
numbers on the left which works only if there are the same amount of digits.
If some of my rows have 3 digits, and other rows have 5 digits, the Ctrl+Tab
lines it all on the left. Even if I then use my space bar to 'move over' the
column of 3 digits to match the column of 5 digits, it doesn't line up???

oh come on ... have you read *anything* in help? If you want to align things
by the right, use right-tabs.... (as opposed to left-tabs, center-tabs,
decimal-tabs) ....
