That does indeed solve the problem but I dont want the colums to be separated by paragraphs.
I am trying to automatically format 700 units in a table and the tabs work brilliantly.
That para breks makes a mess of the rest of my formatting. I'd have to go through and manually remove about 15000 para breaks.
Is there any way around this?
I'd look at using nested styles triggered by the tabs to apply your character styles.
