I wonder if there are extra columns hidden in there. Working on a copy, what happens if you select the entire table and choose Table > Distribute Columns Evenly?
If that doesn't expose the answer, are you able to share the file? If so, you can put it on dropbox and post a link here (public) or via message (private). I'll be here about 40 more minutes, then can check back this afternoon.
You can also look at it in the Story Editor from the Edit menu. Select the column > open the Story Editor > check to see if the column you think is selected is really selected. It will also tell you if there is a hidden column.

That's what I was afraid of. This was set up with extra columns and spans—and that was't necessary.
If someone gave me this file to edit, I would strongly consider making a brand new table with the correct number of rows and columns and move the data over. You could try to clean up this one, but it won't be easy. If this table will be edited again in the future, then I'd say it is worth it to redesign it correctly. I'm sorry!
Thank you Barb, I assumed as much. I appreciate your time.
Barb, your reply was helpful.
My life as a graphic designer, often times I’ve to work with what is given and then asked to modify.
Every file has a story and a history: Good, bad and downright wrong.
Redo the Table. Stop the madness!
I do like the icons at the top.
Got vector transparent icons??? They look like gnarly raster reductions.
By curiosity, could you share this table? [.idml]
Leslie, Here was my take on this without seeing your file.
Just a prototype. Getting started. Color change.
One Table formatted, One text frame.
• Used Illustrator for all vector icons outlined. Some custom made.
All Anchored or Inline graphics for InD Table.
• Text, created and assigned Character Styles.
• Header is 2 rows.
