Default Decimal point alignment of numbers

Hello, I would like to align numbers in one column of a Word table. For
example, I have a column of numbers, part of which is:
90.03g
5.45ml
132.3c
78.0l

I would like to align the numbers vertically at the decimal point. Is there
a simple way of doing this without having to split the column into 3 and
have the decimal point in the middle. Thanks in advance.
David

Insert a decimal tab; Word will do the rest (no tab character needed). Your
text must be left-aligned, however. See
