Resize Columns in a table in InDesign CS 6

I am working on a request from one of my designers to write an applescript to be able to resize columns in a table for content coming from Excel into InDesign CS6.
I need to be able to have a script that will resize a column or number of columns to different widths. Can someone give me a starting point and I’ll go from there? I have so far not been able to find out how to do it by searching the forums.


parent of the table is the story. so getting all tables of a story gives you a list of its tables.
A Table has got columns and rows. those have the properties width and height …

A good (best) reference: (even though it’s javascript)
