      Need an Indesign java script to know the table column width value.

          with ExtendScript scripting you could get the values with:


          // Select a table, not a text frame


          Or if you want to write the values to the JavaScript Console of the ExtendScript Toolkit (ESTK):


          // Select a table, not a text frame


          The values are expressed in the Ruler Units of your document.

          E.g. If the ruler is the set to Points, then the values are in points.


          If you want a tool to store and reapply column width values see
