Change the width of a table

Specify the width of a table. If you do not specify a width, the table expands to the width of the parent container.

About this task

This procedure assumes that you have not explicitly sized individual columns with an absolute value.


You can set the width of a table, but you should not try to set the height of a table. The height is determined by the number of rows created.

  1. Select the Table object.
  2. Hover your cursor over the right-most border of the last column tab in the report until the resizing arrows appear.
  3. Move the mouse until the table is the size you desire.
    The X-Size property will change from the default (max) to a number representing the width you have selected.
