 What's the difference between decimal and right alignment in text object

I'm using Crystal Reports 6.0 for reporting and I thought that I finally
come across the feature I was looking for in version 6. What I would
like to achieve is to align a column of decimal numbers with a varying
number of decimals so that the decimal points would align. I was
delighted when I found out that you can place database fields inside of
a text object and set tab positions with align (left, center, right or
decimal ) to do the trick  but once again  the result was as
disappointing as it usually is with CrystalReports, nothing works the
way you'd expect. I've written a formatting formula that counts how many
decimals a number has and set the decimal positions accordingly but what
CR does is  right align the fields. If some knows a way to do this basic
formatting thing then let  me know by email.
