Cannot seem to find a way to change the WIDTH of columns in my dashboard report that lists open projects. Would like to resize them; tried dragging the borders (e.g. Excel), looking at column properties, field properties, report settings, "customize this page," Help, etc. I must just be missing it somewhere!
If you are trying to force a column width to be wider, one technique is to override the field name with a column heading name which has no breaks in it.
For example, go to the actual full report and right click the field name and change it to the name
and then save the report with that override column heading. QuickBase will not wrap a column heading except at a space or hyphen character ( and no doubt other special characters)
"<div style=\"width:300px;\" >" & [name of your field (report column)] & "</div>"
So basically you can tell the field how wide you want it by changing the width value of the HTML div tag.
After that just modify the report so you are showing your new Formula - Text field instead of the not modifiable normal text field. :)
Expected a valid expression after the "&"
