Using Text Wrap property instead of setting Widths

A lot of beginners in Cognos try to set list column widths to fit data to avoid text wrapping rather than using the White Space property. This is probably because the property name is misleading.

So to all those beginners who didn't know, set the White Space property of a list column to No Wrap instead of trying to set fixed widths if the intention is to avoid the data displayed in the column from wrapping.
