    How to disable change in column width in a table b (1)

    Hi
    I need small help.
    I have a problem about Table in MS word.
    When multiple users are using a template of a Table, they can change
    the column widths & hence those tables with different column widths
    cannot be annexed below each other.
    Is there any to way to freeze the column width of a table, so that
    different users cannot change the width, however only will be able to
    enter data & can add / delete rows.
    How to disable change in column width in a table by users?
    How to freeze column width?
    Thanks

    Yes.
    i don't like Word 2003's method, which is to use highlight a column, go to TABLE, TABLE PROPERTIES, then uncheck the preferred width of the TABLE, but keep checked preferred width of a column and choose a size for the column.

    I prefer to use the older method which can be accessed this way -- Highlight a column, hit ALT-F8 (or TOOLS, MACROS, MACROS), Select "Word Commands" rather than all active templates, and look for "TableColumnWidth" I have customized my table shortcut menus and my table menu so that this is immediately accessible
