Width. In the Width box, type the desired width (in inches) you want to apply to the selected variable(s). If one variable is selected, the value entered in this field will affect the currently selected column. If more than one variable is selected, the new variable width will be applied to all selected variables in the spreadsheet.

Cancel. Click the Cancel button to exit this dialog box without changing the width of the selected variable(s).

Note that variable name will wrap to fit the column width. However the values in the variable will not.
