Hi, Uwe,

If you only need to export to LaTeX you can load the siunitx package,
which not only fits the decimals perfectly in a table but you can also
define a value for the decimal sign that will be seen in the PDF.

It has a small drawback. Columns with numeric value (S) cannot contain
anything other than numbers. If you want to add an arbitrary text string
in one of those columns you must enclose that string in {}. That is, on
the org side it would be @@latex:{foo}@@

You can try this with your example:

#+LaTeX_Header: \usepackage{siunitx}
#+LaTeX_Header: \sisetup{detect-all}
#+LaTeX_Header: \sisetup{output-decimal-marker = {,}}

#+ATTR_LaTeX: :align SSS
| 3.5 | 4.2 | 7.7 |
#+TBLFM: $3=$1+$2

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
