Are you talking about the length of variables in a text field? One way to do this would be to use a calculated field using the left or mid functions:
My query obviously confused so have tried again. In attached file I have moved sheets 4 and 5 to dashboard 1. I want the columns to be the same size but as numbers in sheet 4 are much bigger, tableau gives them more room. Now I know the size of my numbers and want to make each column the same size (say allow 15 spaces to include separating ,s) so that I control not tableau as otherwise I get a mess. I can move the box but this gets into a mess when looked at through tableau reader and in my actual data, I have several of these things to add to one dashboard. My variables are numbers not necessarily integers but will be displayed as intergers with , separating thousands. So how can I make each column to have 15 spaces?
