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"?

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).

Thanks to both of you for the explanation.
