[CLOSED] Fixed width table with dynamic number of columns
Hello,

I have a table that has dynamic number of columns depending on the values of parameters. Does anyone know how to keep the width of the table fixed? In other words, the width of column can be automatically adjusted.

The format of the table is PDF. Then it is compounded into a PPT report.

Thanks a lot!

YY

May be because it's Friday but I'm totally confused...


You said that you have dynamic number of columns in your table (understood report) -- this mean that you can have a report with 1, 2, 3 or 20 columns in the output.

You are asking to have the width of the table fixed -- this mean a fixed number of columns in the table (report). Which goes against first sentence. If you want it fixed, do not allow dynamic number of columns.

You said that the width of column can be automatically adjusted -- the column width is per default automatically adjusted to the largest value within each column.


Are you looking for a fixed report format that will always take the same space ?

Can you clarify your request ?
