    how to have different column widths for the same column

    I'm trying to have separate column widths in the same column, based on the rows.

    the top half of my spreadsheet are assumptions, formatted with the corrects widths needed, but then below I have calculations and such that I do not want the same widths for. how can I lock in the top part so I can decrease the column widths for the bottom half of my spreadsheet?

    hope this makes sense.

    I'm sorry but you can't do that.
    Hope that helps.

    As Roy said, Excel does not allow that. You can create that illusion by merging two columns (or centering across 2 columns) on the top and then having your formulas in a single column below.

    You can also avoid merging columns and hide gridlines and use borders to create the illusion of wider columns in one area than another. Hope this helps.
