Unfortunately, this only works with date or numeric values. From the Microsoft reference site:

Attribute: ss:AutoFitWidth
Description: If this attribute is specified as True ("1"), it means that this column should be autosized for numeric and date values only. *We do not autofit textual values*.
If both ss:Width and ss:AutoFitWidth exist, the behavior is as follows:

•ss:AutoFitWidth="1" and ss:Width is unspecified: Autofit the column width to fit the content.
•ss:AutoFitWidth="1" and ss:Width is specified: Set the column to the specified width and only autofit if the size of the content is larger than the specified width.
•ss:AutoFitWidth="0" and ss:Width is unspecified: Use the default column width.
•ss:AutoFitWidth="0" and ss:Width is specified: Use the specified width.

If I do not specify columns, is there a way to do this?? I am trying to make the XSLT dynamic and not define columns so that it can be used for all of our form submissions. And also work if we decide to add a field later...
