width of a column is used when the material in a cell is too wide for the
given cell length.† The cell width can
be changed manually, by dragging the borders between the column headings, or
exactly, by double clicking the right boundary of the column heading you wish
to change.† Changing the width manually
lets you make the cell however narrow or wide you want it to be.† Changing the width exactly changes the
length to exactly accommodate the columnís longest entry.
