For a table with a wide column can org-mode use a width on the column as
well as word wrap?
The work column is too wide in stafflog.org:

| arrived            | staff           | work                                                                        | left               |

What did you try?  Can you show how it should look like?

I only wrote text in a column and haven't tried anything for that column
yet.  I searched through info org and came close to stuff that looked
like it might work but only came close according to the documentation.
I've never done anything like this with org-mode before so figured it
might be a good idea to ask here first.

You can use M-RET in the cell to wrap the line - but when exporting,
each line will be exported independantly, so this is limited.

I think the best that's now possible with orgmode is something like the
following.  I'll just need to be careful entering text into the work
column since the users of this table haven't even got emacs on their
computers let alone orgmode.
