How to set a Minimum column width for a single report? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way to set a minimum width for a tablix column on an RDL? In design mode all my columns are the same width, but when I run the report, they contract and expand according to data size.

    If I set a min width then I can account for most data sizes and get as little width deviation as possible so the report looks nice.

     

    Thanks!

  • Set CanGrow property of the column or textbox to False. By default it is set to True.

  • Thanks for your reply. I will try that. Hope it does grow though when the data gets bigger than the set size.
