Format page or table to be wider than current screen

I am trying to add a "swimlane" table that is connected to JIRA issues. As you can imagine swimlanes are time dependant and we have quite a few fixed releases in the future. Which means i need a very wide table that I could horizontally scroll through. Right now, any column I add gets squeezed in the table and the screen. 



I have tried without success: 


1- Click and drag the rightmost column to the right but it wont get extended

2- Add more columns to see if it can extend the page

3- Extend other columns (not on extremities) to try and force extend the page. 


Is there a way to format the page or the table so that i can include as many columns as i want?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Does that make any sense? If not, try to explain via a screenshot what you're trying to achieve.

Thanks for your reply Dave. Sorry for not being clear in my question. Because I am trying to do horizontal scrolling for my table. I need to have several columns due to the nature of my roadmap. 


It seems that my question is a duplicate of this one 

How do I add horizontal scrolling to a table or pa... (
