MY QUESTION:

How to make it easy, almost foolproof, to be able to quickly format
the stuff I type in.


Type stuff:

cash       20,000          short term debt   89,000
cash      20,000          short term debt   89,000
cash       20,000         short term debt   89,000
cash      20,000         short term debt   89,000
cash       20,000          short term debt    89,000
cash       20,000          short term debt     89,000

Select it, type M-x align-cols RET and get:

cash       20,000          short term debt     89,000
cash       20,000          short term debt     89,000
cash       20,000          short term debt     89,000
cash       20,000          short term debt     89,000
cash       20,000          short term debt     89,000
cash       20,000          short term debt     89,000



Put into a buffer in org-mode

After replacing commata by dots

M-x org-table-convert-region

| cash | 20.000 | short | term | debt | 89.000 |
| cash | 20.000 | short | term | debt | 89.000 |
| cash | 20.000 | short | term | debt | 89.000 |
| cash | 20.000 | short | term | debt | 89.000 |
| cash | 20.000 | short | term | debt | 89.000 |
| cash | 20.000 | short | term | debt | 89.000 |
