Hi all

Thanks in advance.  I have a weird question and I can't figure out how to make Word do what I want.  I need to make a form follow the below formatting.  Specically, I need to a right justification to the area left of the : and a left justification to the area right of the :.  I put it in bold what I need.  I'm not sure how to do this.

Use a table and hide the borders, that way you can individually align the contents of cell

You could consider separating the left/right text with a tab, and to format the paragraph with a single right tabstop.

Use a Right Tab first to align the labels, and a Left Tab second to align the information.
