Is it possible to adjust the width of individual cells within a column, row or sheet in the same way that you can in Word?  It seems that the width of a cell cannot be different than the width of the entire column.  Many thanks for your help.  John P.

All cells in a column have the same width.

You can make it look like a cell spans multiple columns by applying Center Across Selection as horizontal alignment (or by merging cells, but that often has undesirable side effects).
