I am setting some timetables in a sans font. I'd like to use dcolumn for aligning the times on the decimal point, but the package assumes you are using math.

Is there an easy way to defeat this and have dcolumn set the columns in the current or specified font? I will not be needing any math symbols.

You can use sansmath:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{dcolumn,sansmath}

\newenvironment{sftabular}
 {\sffamily\mathversion{sans}\tabular}
 {\endtabular}

\begin{document}

\begin{sftabular}{lD{.}{.}{2.2}}
xyz &  2.1 \\
abc & 12.2 \\
uvw &  1.21
\end{sftabular}

\end{document}
