Column Widths

Column Widths

Column Widths

every time I format a column and save it, provided I don't change any aspect of the query, the columns width remain as saved. Once I change something in the query, the columns display wider than originally set.

Is there a way to set default column widths so that changing a date (for instance) doesn't force me to re-format all the columns??

What do you mean ? How do you format it and save it ?


RE: Column Widths

...I'm a newbie to this stuff so bare with me..

Rather than try to explain that, let me ask the question differently. Is there a way to stipulate the width of a column (for the query's output) when creating the query?
