# How can I adjust the column widths of a specific matrix?

**etrentac**I am trying to adjust the matrix column widths within each specific matrix in a form. However, when I try it, it sometimes adjusts the column widths for EVERY matrix in the form. So, for example, all the matrices will have a 150px column 1, a 100px column 2, etc. But I want to be able to adjust these in each matrix. I've been using the following as an example, and adjusting the values for each #id:

#id_88 .form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

}.form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

}.form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values+ .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

}.form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

}

URL of form included.

Thanks!

**chanesteves**Hi etrentac ,

From what I understand, the CSS you gave above is just meant to change the column widths within the matrix #id_88. In that case, you have to specify/add #id_88 for each style. Otherwise, it will change the widths of the columns within other matrices.

Try changing your CSS as below:

-----------------------------------------------------------

#id_88 .form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

} // 1st column

#id_88 .form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

} // 2nd column

#id_88 .form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values+ .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

} // 3rd column

#id_88 .form-matrix-row-headers + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values + .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

width : 190px !important;

} // 4th column

-----------------------------------------------------------

I highlighted the changes. It should only change the widths of columns within #id_88.

I hope it helps!

**etrentac**Yes, that is exactly what I was trying to do! Thanks for pointing out what was missing!!
