I found the script below for controlling the width of a SP column elsewhere on this site. What SharePoint file would I insert this code in or can I just create a file with the code (and proper column name) and upload it to the SharePoint web site with an aspx file extension in one of the sub-folders? Thanks!

Use this javascript in your page:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
       $("TH.ms-vh2:contains('Name')").css("width", "300px"); //You can change the Column Name to be the column you want to change the width, Title in the code for example.
