setting ms word table column width via C#

hello experts,

how do I set the column width of a table in MS Word 2002.

at this point, i am just guessing around.  here is my best guess:

Word.Table table = doc.Tables.Add(r, 1, 8, ref objTableBehavior,      ref objAutoFit);  <--adding table to documnet
Word.Column myCol1 = table.Columns.Item(1);  
myCol1.Width = 5F;

when attempting to run, i get "value out of range" error message.

In fact there is lower limit for a word table column's width. You should use values greater than 10.
