How can I set the item size of the items 0.2 and 300 below to a smaller size than "AKs"?

Grid[{{"AKs", SpanFromLeft, 0.2}, {SpanFromAbove, SpanFromBoth, 300}},
  Alignment -> {{Center, Right}, {Center, Right}}, 
 ItemSize -> {{Automatic, 6}, {Automatic, 6}}, Frame -> None]

You could use Row and Column: Row[{"AKs ", Column[{0.2, 300}]}] Or specify ItemSize for all elements: ItemSize -> {{Automatic, Automatic, 6}, {Automatic, Automatic, 6}} –  ssch Jun 1 '13 at 16:22
Thanks, I forgot to put the extra specification since each row has 3 elements. –  dabd Jun 1 '13 at 22:54
@dabd I find this question somewhat hard to understand. Does ssch's method satisfy? –  Mr.Wizard Jun 5 '13 at 9:57
Yes I posted a comment above. Since he posted the solution in a comment I can't mark it as "solved". –  dabd Jun 6 '13 at 10:42
