Hi

I am trying to widen my first template field to 600 as shown below but the field seems to                                   <HeaderStyle Width="600px" />
remain the same narrow size

            <asp:GridView ID="GridView_Questions" runat="server" BackColor="White"
                BorderColor="#3366CC" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="4"
                Height="147px" Visible="False" Width="795px">
                <Columns>
       
                               <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Question">

                               </asp:TemplateField>

I also tried the following which didn't work either
            <asp:GridView ID="GridView_Questions" runat="server" BackColor="White"
                BorderColor="#3366CC" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="4"
                Height="147px" Visible="False" Width="795px">
                <Columns>
       
                               <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Question" ControlStyle-Height="220"
            ControlStyle-Width="700">
                                   <ControlStyle Height="220px" Width="700px" />
                                   <HeaderStyle HorizontalAlign="Left" />

                               </asp:TemplateField>
