Hi again, need more help.

What´s the difference between "8 columns across" and "8 columns wide"? And between "11 rows down" and "11 rows deep"?

Thanks again, Guada.

    Well, it would depend on the context, but in general 8 columns wide and 8 rows deep would describe the dimensions of something (e.g. a table in a spreadsheet), whilst 8 columns across and 8 rows down would describe the location of something (e.g. an individual cell in a spreadsheet).

    Hope this helps.

    "8 columns across" = a 8 columnas , 8 columnas más allá
    "8 columns wide" = de 8 columnas de grosor, de ancho
    "11 rows down" = 11 filas más abajo, 11 filas por debajo, a 11 filas
    "11 rows deep" = de 11 filas de profundidad (nosotros diríamos "de 11 filas de largo" ¿no?)
    En "across" y "down" no indicas lo que ocupan sino dónde estan, wide es ancho (anchura) y deep es profundidad (en este caso, largo).
