2nd paragraph - set the Column Width

The procedure specified to set the column width for a selected column is not feasible. It says to right-click on the header for a selected column and then click on Column Width from the shortcut menu that appears. There is no Column Width entry in the shortcut menu.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The reader misunderstood what I was referring to as the column header in the text. Let's change Step 2 on pg 162 to say the following: "Right-click one of the selected column headers (F, in the figure) and choose Column Width from the shortcut menu to dislpay the Column Width dialog box." Let's also add a note in the blank space in the lower left corner of page 163: "Note The tools on the shortcut menu vary depending on whether you select a column or row header--that is, the letter or number at the top or leftmost cell of a column or row--or a cell or a range on the worksheet."
