I have a table that I am using another table as  a look up.  The data in that is aligned right.  I don't like that.  I don't write code.... is there a simple way to make it align left?

Open the table in Design view, select your column and then click the Formatting option needed. See the screenshot for more details.

Not sure I completely follow .. but if you enter the bang (!) symbol in the Format property of the Field (see image),  that will force Left Align

! Force left alignment instead of right alignment.

All Table properties are Left aligned.
I don't see any alignment property for a Table.
If i is a form you're looking at you would need to change the properties of each field in the forms ("Design View") to Left Align.
