jrwlkn is correct, but just because coloumn 1 is the "seen" column, doesn't mean it's the "bound column.
If you put column 2 as the bound column, I can't see any reason under the \sun why it wouldn't be.
Column widths property allows you to control which columns are seen irrespective of the bound column.
(I might be taken it for granted that you actually tried it as a link, to see which column is bound. your table results will show which column is bound also...?
but as jrwlkn said, your number of columns have to be at least the number of your bound column.
Please excuse any elementary pointers here.
