Default Need to stop text in a column from wrapping or expanding

I have a table, and one particular column I need to be fixed and not allow the text to wrap (so happy for the text to be cut off).



How do I achieve this please?

So uncheck the 'wrap text' option for the cells concerned. See under Table Tools|Layout|Properties>Cell>Options.

As an alternative, you might want to use the 'Fit Text' option there. This will cause the text to fit the available space without wrapping.
