Hi Vengoal, Depending on your needs, Keith's answer of ResultSetMetaData.getColumnDisplaySize() is probably enough. If you need more information and specifics about the columns, you can also use DatabaseMetaData.getColumns(). There's actually an example of both methods in the list archives at: http://archive.midrange.com/java101/200107/msg00035.html I also have an example using ResultSetMetaData.getColumnDisplaySize() to set up a fixed font display in one of the exercises for my JDBC tutorial at Sun's developer site.

If you want further info then refer to the JDBC API docs.
