There are two factors at work he

1. If you have Word 2000 or above, your table is probably set to resize
automatically. On the Table tab of Table Properties, click Options..., and
disable this (or use Table | AutoFit | Fixed Column Width).

2. There are various ways of resizing columns by dragging either the ruler
markers or the column boundaries. By combining dragging with Ctrl and Shift,
you can change the behavior; for more see
