I am displaying a Form within Outlook 2010 of my SQLCE Table, but both the Table (if I "Show Table Data") and the data on the Form have Column Widths that do not show all of the data.

As in Excel, if I double-click on the line at the end of the Column Header, the Column will expand to be as big as the longest entry.

Is there a way of making this occur automatically, without manually having to double-click ?

If you are using a DataGridview, there is a property AutoSizeColumnsMode. Set the value as AllCells

Perfect, thank you

Just a thought, is there a way, therefore, to make the Form itself, shrink (or grow if necessary, to perfectly fit the re-sized Columns ?!? I guess there must be ... I'll start looking ...

You can dock the gridview in its parent container. ( if it is the form itself) and then try with the Form Properties AutoSize and AutoSizeMode.

Yes, I got the Docking bit & I am experimenting with AutoSize & AutoSizeMode, but I can't get it to resize as I want. If I have AutoSize set to True & AutoSizeMode set to GrowAndShrink it always opens as a tiny little window, whereas if I have it as grow only, it doesn't seem to change size ... weird !
