Sharepoint column width

Hi experts,

I made a custom list in Sharepoint 3.0. The four columns are Last Name, First Name, Referral and Date of Consult.

The issue is that the columns are automatically spaced across the top, therefore the first name is too far away from the last name. Is there a way to move the columns where you want them?

Thanks in advance.

if you change your view to datasheet view the moving of columns acts much like excel columns.

Thanks sharepointguru,

If I open in datasheet view, then the columns are where I want them. But, when I switch back to the regular view, they don't stay. Are you saying, you can't move them in the regular view?

Thanks.

unfortunately in WSS 3.0 in standard views you cannot adjust the width of the columns. There are some third party products that allow you to, but they do cost money.

You can also open it in SharePoint Designer and make the modification there, not sure if you are comfortable with that or not though

I love Sharepoint, but it is a bit overwhelming. What are the 3rd party programs?

Corasworks data integration toolset I think was the name. Corasworks is definitely the company. I'm not sure of current pricing but its probably "too expensive" for just this use.

SharePoint is a large product and definitely does have a learning curve, I can sympathize with you there.
