Change column width independently

Hey guys, I would like to know if it is possible to change column widths independently on the same calc document.

In the attached document I have 2 tables:“Ecommerce provider price comparison” and "Translation provider price comparison.
I want to make the width of the columns wider but only in the second table (Translation provider price comparison).

I could just make a separate document for “translation provider price comparison”, but I would prefer to keep both tables within the same document- hence my question.
Maybe there is some way to make the bar containing column widths appear a second time, below the first table and above the second?

So, is it doable?


Your tables use the same columns of one sheet. One column cannot have variable width on different levels.

Having said that, you have three ways if you want the tables to be in the same document.

  1. You can move second table to a new sheet within the same document. There, you may set the column widths to whatever you like independently of the first sheet’s columns.
  2. You may move the second table to the right, so that it uses following columns, which may be resized independently.
  3. If you definitely want to keep them stacked, then you may use the worst way - to use multiple much narrower columns (so that you have many little “cells”), and merge them to form the tables as you need. So, each table cell would consist of many merged narrow cells.

Will go with adding a new sheet. Thanks Mike.
