An option is to use <apex:panelGrid> as explained in this answer:


if you set the columnClasses property of the panelGrid you can then just set the widths of each column (you'll need a column for the label and the field). e.g.

    .tableStyle {border-collapse: collapse; border-spacing: 0px 0px; }
    .colStyle1 { width: 16.5%; padding: 3px 0 5px 0;    text-align:right;}
    .colStyle2 { width: 10%;   padding: 5px 0 5px 20px;                  }
    .colStyle3 { width: 10%;   padding: 5px 0;          text-align:right;}
    .colStyle4 { width: 21%;   padding: 5px 0 5px 20px;                  }
    .colStyle5 { width: 10%;   padding: 5px 0;          text-align:right;}
    .colStyle6 { width: 32%;   padding: 5px 0 4px 20px;                  }
    .rowstyle { border-bottom-style:solid; border-bottom-width:1px; border-bottom-color:#E8E8E8 }

<apex:pageBlockSection showHeader="true" title="Allowances" columns="1" id="allowances">
    <apex:panelGrid columns="6" border="0" styleClass="tableStyle" width="100%" columnClasses="colStyle1,colStyle2,colStyle3,colStyle4,colStyle5,colStyle6" rowClasses="rowstyle">
  • It worked. All the fields are aligned perfectly.Thank you. – vraavi Aug 6 '14 at 21:19

You could leverage the dataStyle or dataStyleClass attributes on the <apex:pageBlockSectionItem /> elements to coerce that column to be consistently wider.

apex:pageBlockSectionItem documentation

Your tag might look like this for that third column:

<apex:pageBlockSectionItem dataStyle="width:20%;">

This would instruct the browser that you want the "data" cell to the right (not the label cell to the left) to render as 20% of the width of the entire table that it is within. This may be too large of a percentage, so adjust as necessary.
