Hi,

Here's the code I use to format the columns:


driverStatData = new DataSet();
driverStatTable = new DataTable("DriverStatsTable");
driverStatData.Tables.Add(driverStatTable);
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Statistic", typeof(string)));
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Col 1", typeof(double)));
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Col 2", typeof(double)));
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Percent", typeof(string)));


How do I give the first column more width?

Thanks.
Bob
