Simple solution. In Autonumbering add a tab before and after the entry. 
In the tab settings make the first tab a right aligned tab and the 
second tab a left aligned tab. We usually put .15" in between the tabs 
and have the whole list indented .25".  Adjust tab spacing as needed if 
you run into lists with three digits.
