Hi,

When I refresh an Excel pivot table, the column width is automatically fit to the contents (auto fit)

I would like to avoid this. I want to keep the width to a specific value.

How can I do it?

Thanks

You can set this in the PivotTable options.  Right-click on the PivotTable, select "PivotTable Options..." at the bottom of the shortcut menu.  On the bottom of the first tab (Layout & Format), turn off "Autofit column widths on update"
