Hi Team,

I have a Grid Edit Report and I want to increase column width of this report (see attachment). I know we can do it with the help of IOL technique but need some guidance in that way.

I have seen some solutions on community to create the formula fields to use some HTML but that will not work for my work as I have to use this grid edit report for updating multiple records.

Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Thanks,
Gaurav

Just sharing. I dropped a grid edit onto a form and was having an issue with my long text field columns being too short as well. I only have two fields that require longer text entry, so the entire table fits well within the browser window.

I changed the default value for the fields to provide a short explanation as to what should be entered into the field. For example, "Enter a short description of the defect that occurred."

That caused the columns to widen to accommodate the length of the entry without the unsightly underscore on the field name.  This may or may not be helpful for your application, but for those who are having the same issue as I am, this might be a simple solution. Good luck!

Good. But, I have created a Grid edit report and it needs a different solution. I am trying now the above solution (Sam C).
