Actually the best method is with tabs. Simply show the ruler, click on the right extreme position (where the right-most character of the figures should be), and then double click the tab marker and choose a alignment to the right, instead of the default alignment to the left. You can also choose the characters you want to see between the end of the text and the beginning of the figure (spaces, dots...).
I hope this helps!
Added: So you need the figures on the left handside. OK. Just click in the ruler in the position of the rightmost character of the biggest figure, so that a tab is created there. Then you assign aligmnent on the right to that, and when you have to enter a new line you press Tab so that Word takes you to the position of the tab. When you type the figure, it should flow to the left, not to the right as normal text.

I never found how to do this in Word. Will save me a lot of time and hair!
Thanks a lot!
