Formatting tables by Y Chang
When adjusting the column widths using the mouse cursor, sometimes the boundary lines move to where you want it to; sometimes it jumps around and reformats the entire table. How can I adjust table width without this problem? Thanks. Our office uses Word 2003 on Windows XP Professional.

Wasn`t able to answer directly to the group. I tried your macro, Charles Kenyon. But Word went into complete hang with 99 % use of CPU power. Nothing happened after 1 hour so I closed it. Too bad. Oyvind
