Thumbs up Answer: how to align dollar signs in tables

Sure, I can help you with that! Here's how you can align dollar signs in tables in Microsoft Word:
  1. Select the cells that you want to format. You can do this by clicking and dragging your mouse over the cells, or by clicking on the first cell and then holding down the Shift key while clicking on the last cell.
  2. Right-click on the selected cells and choose "Format Cells" from the context menu.
  3. In the "Format Cells" dialog box, click on the "Number" tab.
  4. Under "Category," select "Currency."
  5. In the "Symbol" section, choose the currency symbol that you want to use (in this case, the dollar sign).
  6. Under "Symbol Position," choose "Left."
  7. Click "OK" to apply the formatting to the selected cells.

Now, the dollar sign should be aligned to the left margin of the cell, and the numbers should be aligned to the right margin of the cell. If you want to apply this formatting to other cells in your table, you can use the Format Painter tool to copy the formatting from one cell to another. Simply select the cell with the formatting you want to copy, click on the Format Painter button on the Home tab, and then click on the cells you want to apply the formatting to.

Set a left aligned tab at the left of the cell and positing the decimal tab
where you want the decimal point to be aligned. Then when you enter the
cell type the $ and then use Ctrl+Tab and then type the number.

Another way is to create a new bullet that uses the $ sign and apply that to
the cells.
