On Word, there was a way that I learned in class but forgot where when you press tab just once the cursor goes to that imaginary line where it would be aligned to in the middle and then when you press tab again it would go to the right side. How can this be done, in the context of lining up all the repetitive information like cities, dates, all at the same invisible column, so that you don't have to use the space bar multiple times to try to manually line them up?

Also how do you do this with dots in between for the papers you get at music concerts (I forget what they are called)?
