    Table columns (Word 2000)

    Hi - I'm trying to create a table that has fixed columns, but as soon as I type in a word that is wider than the column, the column expands to accommodate the word. Is there any way I can fix the width of a column please? <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    With the insertion point somewhere in the table, select Table | Table Properties...
    In the Table tab, click Options...
    Clear the check box labeled "Automatically resize to fit contents".
    Click OK (twice)

    By the way, since this is the default behavior for tables (i.e. automatically resize to fit contents), you might want to make tables with 2 rows & 2, 3, etc. columns, formatted the way you want them. Then save them as autotext entries with names like t2, t3, etc.. Then when you want a table, just type t3, for example, & press F3.
    Cheers,
