Hi Christine,

You can adjust the column widths inside the application by just dragging the column borders in the grid.

For the reports, you can change the width by using HTML style="width:200px" type of statements in the XSLT.

Hi David,

I've followed your advice in the post below and I'm able to get this snippet to correctly resize the table header in MS Word,

<th style="width:100px">Author Name</th>

However, the following report formats don't recognize the custom column width:

  1. HTML
  2. Excel
  3. PDF

I'm new to this type of reporting.  If I want to start making minor styling changes should I make one custom report for each type of Report Format that I want to use?  I guess that would only be necessary if the syntax for setting width of the Table Header had to be different for each report format.

Are you aware of any Inflectra documentation that might be helpful for basic styling.  All I really want to do is to remove unwanted columns (I'm unable to do that for Custom Fields) and assign a fixed width to columns as needed.
