Formatted "Pretty" print in Java

I print a few lines of text as a result of a query.

office    3238 0 299939

Column 1 is always the office and is an 11-character string, 2 is the number of "gapped" calls, col 3 is "blocked" and col 4 is "deflected". How can I right justify the fields? How can I start the rightmost character of each field in the same column? Columns 2 and 3 will never be larger than 7 digits. and column 4 could be up to 10 digits.
