Not sure what the issue is here. TABT is a format alpha type output. If a field is declared with decimal values, then TABT holds them with decimal places, albeit in alpha format. The MFD associated shows that it is held as alpha(ACTUAL) but should be used as numeric(USAGE).
Can you be more specific as to your issue please.

I have a column to display amount field which is of the length 'A25'. And the column is getting right justified always, so when the user opens the report, the column looks blank. Only after double clicking the top of the column I am able to see the data. Is there any way to make it left justified?
MS Excel sees it as a number so will right justify the value - MS considers that it knows beter than the end user what the end user wants! Not helpful, but the problem is with how MS Excel interprets the data - not WebFOCUS!
