Maybe sounds strange, but what do you mean by editor here? In what or with what do you want to integrate that editor? The above operation has to be done automatically?
I mean, why don't you do the above operation in excel?

I used to use a text editor called pfe (Programmers File Editor) that I think had a column block mode. You didn't even need to take the whole column and it would move everything neatly. It was free.

PSPad http://www.pspad.com/ has a column mode.  I don't remember seeing it in PFE but you can get it here: http://www.lancs.ac.uk/staff/steveb/cpaap/pfe/

Sorry, it wasn't pfe it was UltraEdit, which is very similar, a bit more powerful, and not free. You can get a free trial if just for a single task.
Dave's PSpad looks pretty good, I'm going to install one.

Excell would not work, because I would like to do that with any text file.

LibreOffice Writer, included in LibreOffice Windows (FREE) can accomplish this. If you have MSOffice on your PC, you can do this with Word as well.
