Does this work? counts = {25, 10, 14, 10, 13, 12, 3, 6, 10, 8, 68}; papers = Plus @@ counts; pcts = 100. counts/papers; grades = {"A ", "A-", "B+", "B ", "B-", "C+", "C ", "C-", "D+", "D ", "F "}; TableForm[Transpose[ {grades, NumberForm[#, 3, NumberPadding -> {" ", ""}] & /@ counts, NumberForm[#, {4, 1}, NumberPadding -> {" ", "0"}] & /@ pcts}], TableHeadings -> {None, {"Grade", "Number", "Per Cent"}}] I think the non-obvious tricks are the space as the first argument to NumberPadding to produce right-alignment, and the "0" as the second argument to pad with zeros on the right. -- Ben Kovitz Humboldt State University
