I have a table column that has numbers with decimals and some numbers end with an asterisk as the superscript. I am not able to align the column entries. If the superscript is not there, I am able to solve the problem using "dcolumn" package. But to have a superscript, I have to use \$ command in the maths mode. Then "dcolumn" is not working. Any suggestions would be of great help as I have spent lot of effort on it.
For instance, my column entries are
-.28***
1.40
-2.08*
and so on.

Thanks a lot,

Peeyush

You can avoid the mathmode by using \textsuperscript{}:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[]{dcolumn}
\newcolumntype{d}[1]{D{.}{,}{#1}}

\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{|c|d{4}|c|} \hline
da & 1.4242\textsuperscript{*} & sdfs \\ \hline
da & 1.33& sdfs \\ \hline
\end{tabular}

\end{document}

Best,

Uwe
