This is normal behavior.
Filemaker's table view is only visible in browse or find mode. What you see in layout mode, you can use to control which fields are visible in the table view and you can set formats for the fields. To change column widths and/or their order you have to enter browse mode and then make those modifications. Other special settings for table view can be found in the Layouts | Layout setup... dialog when you are in layout mode.
oh, ok... thanks
