How to format a list in a specific way in Microsoft Word 2007?

How can I create a justified list in Microsoft Word 2007, as seen here?

I would like to know how to format a list in Microsoft Word 2007, to look like the lists (except the first one) on this page of Adobe Illustrator keyboard shortcuts.

The list needs to be left and right justified, and to have 'dots' in the space between the text at the left and the text at the right.

Is there any way to achieve this with automatic formatting?

A table with two columns would let you do left and right-justification. The dots, I don't know.

Format > Style > Tabs > Alignment = Right, Leader = Ellipses.

Thanks, ottereroticist.

For anyone using the ribbon set up in Word 2007, start in the Home tab, expand the Paragraph options, click on Tabs..., and enter an amount in the 'Tab stop position' field, before defining the Alignment and Leader options.
