I believe that you can't change the formatting to a single column for text fields that are of format text area in a section that has variable field width formatting.

If you move the field to a section of fixed field width formatting then the text field will display according to the fixed format of the section.

You can't change the formatting of a section once it has been added to the form - just add another section and move the fields to it.

Hi PagodNaUtak, 
What's exactly you are trying to achieve? if we reduce the size somehow then there will be empty space and other fields might move up to adjust the space in runtime.
If you tell me what exactly you are trying to do we might be able to find something.
Regards,
Chinmay

I want to put the Total external amount subitems breakdown in the first column. because I will put another textbox in the second column. The problem is, in CRM 4.0 when you create an attribute of "textarea" it occupies all the columns.

We can't do it at design time. I can write a script to organize elements at runtime, I will give it a shot and let you know about the same.

Hi PagodNaUtak.
Try this :
document.getElementById("description_d").colSpan = "1";
replaced description with the element name.
for the next step I will need few more hours, in the mean time you can give this script a shot.

Chinmay
