QuickBase doesn't set the width of columns in reports. Since the program has no way of knowing what font and font size a user's browser is configured to, we leave it to the browser to determine the appropriate widths for each column and the appropriate width for the entire report. Usually the browser does a pretty good job of this.

In the following query:

query={'8'.OAF.'3-13-02'}AND{'8'.OBF.'4-13-02'}

I am asking QuickBase to return me only the events that contain the dates
between 3-13-02 and 4-13-02. Is it possible to ask for the events that contain the dates between 'todays date' and 'todays date+5'?

Yes the way to do this is as follows:

query={'8'.OAF.'Today'}AND{'8'.OBF.'-5%20days%20ago'}
