I can Right Align Text in a CListCtrl but when I try to do it in the CListView only the headers get Right Aligned.  All the data is still left Aligned.

Eh? what do you mean "in a CCtrlView" - CCtrlView is a base class (and not usable as such) for views which are a single control (like CListView).

Did you mean it worked ok for CListCtrl and not CListView???

OK... I can't type.  I was having a bad day.  Yes I meant to say:
I can right align in a CListCtrl.  But when I try it in a CListView it only aligns the Headers.

You should get the list control reference from the view,
with:
CListCtrl& GetListCtrl( ) const; of the CListView object.

and apply it with the following:

InsertColumn(...,..,  LVCFMT_RIGHT);

Use ownerdraw listview. In DrawItem() function use CDC::DrawText to show text with flag DT_RIGHT. See sample in mfc\general\rowlist
