Need to fix the column size.


I have some content which is retrieved from the database and is populated in a column. But when the data is being populated the column increases horizontally which causes the user to scroll horizontally. Is there a way in HTML so that i could get the content in the column into a new line. I have fixed the length of the column but that does not seem to work. Thanks for your suggestions.

do you mean you have fixed the *width* of your column?
Try fixing the width of your table too. If it is set to 100% or lower then you should have no horizontal scrolling.
I'm assuming you are using an html table (for your columns) as opposed to an asp.net gridview - either way set the width of the table/div/gridview to 100% or lower.
You can use
<tr><td style="WORD-BREAK:BREAK-ALL"></td></tr>
The style WORD-BREAK:BREAK-ALL so that the horizontal scroll bar wont come.
