I am using ssrs, graphs and tables and publishing to sharepoint.  I have one table that takes up a lot of space horizontally in order to make sure all the data could be seen.  I thought it would be nice if the user could decide if they wanted the field bigger when they are viewing it in sharepoint.

What I really want is for them to click on the line between the two columns and be able to drag it out so they can see the entire field.
