Modifying the width of a column
In addition to modifying the alignment and text properties of column data, you can optimize the layout of a report by adjusting the width of report columns according to the space occupied by column data.
For example, Figure 5-1 and Figure 5-2 show two reports. In Figure 5-1, the report uses the default column width. In Figure 5-2, the same report is modified to optimize its column width. As the example shows, the report in Figure 5-2 looks neater, and eliminates wasted space when you print, or export the content to other formats.
