    How to change width of the whole table when changing column width?

    When I change width of a column, the size of the table remains the same - Word simply redistributes space. However, I need it to change the width of the table too, so that other columns stay the same.

    Please let me know how to do that.

    Thank you!

    Make sure ruler is visible (View cart on ribbon) - it's available only in Print Layout, Web Layout and Draft views
    Now change widths of columns by dragging right column width limit on a ruler (looks like dark gray rectangle). Cursor during this operation is shaped like <=>.

    The behaviour you observed happens when you adjust width of column by placing a cursor over a gridline in a table by <-||-> shaped cursor.
    Best Regards,
