Why are the numbers right-aligned?
When you enter numeric data in a cell, Excel recognizes the values as numbers and right-aligns the values in order
to properly vertically align decimal and integer values. For example, values entered below those entered in this
step automatically will be right-aligned so that the decimals of the values properly align.
