    Hello,
    I use word 2007, when creating a new table from
    insert->table->insert table, there is an item called AutoFit Behavio
    under which there is three selections: (Fixed column width, AutoFit t
    content, AutoFit to window). After creating the table, when you righ
    click the table or a cell you find that there is also an item calle
    AutoFit that opens three selections: (AutoFit to contents, AutoFit t
    window, Fixed column width). what is the function of every item and wha
    is the difference between them?
    any help will be greatly appreciated.
    thank yo

    AutoFit to Contents clears any width settings for table columns and adjusts
    the width based on cell content.

    AutoFit to Window sets a percentage width (100%) which means that the table
    width adjusts to the width of the container it is in (page, text box, etc.).
    Relative column widths are preserved. You can modify the widths in the Table
    Properties dialog box.

    Fixed Column Width sets a fixed with for each column and clears the
    "Automatically resize to fit contents" option in the Table Options dialog
    box. You can modify the widths in the Table Properties dialog box.
