n1 = RandomReal[100, 10];

(n2 = NumberForm[n1, {3, 3}])//FullForm

Look at the FullForm of your n2.  Then note that NumberForm does not have the attribute Listable. 

Attributes[NumberForm]

{Protected}

Use

n2 = NumberForm[#, {3, 3}] & /@ n1;

Column[n2, Right]

=============
Please consider these Mathematica 7 code Input lines:

n1 = RandomReal[100, 10]

n2 = NumberForm[n1, {3, 3}]

Column[n2, Right]

What I expected to get was "ignored", namely right aligned "arbitrary"
numeric data with 3 digits to the right, and 3 digits to the left of
the decimal point) formatted in a single column. How can this be
achieved with any numeric list of data?
