How to change/resize EditText in table layout?

I just want to resize the edittext so that it matches my texts. When I insert an edittext in a table layout in column 3 it fills the whole space of column 3 and looks big. I want to change the size. How is it possible?
Below is my .xml coding:

<TableRow>
<TextView
android:layout_column="1"
android:text="S"
android:layout_width="150dp"
/>

<TextView
android:layout_column="2"
android:text="C"
android:layout_width="75dp" />

<TextView
android:layout_column="3"
android:text="G"/>
</TableRow>

<View
android:layout_height="2dip"
android:background="#FF909090" />

<TableRow>
<TextView
android:layout_column="1"
android:id="@+id/s1"
android:text="Medium Text"/>
<TextView
android:layout_column="2"
android:id="@+id/c1"
android:text="Text"/>

<EditText
android:id="@+id/g1"
android:layout_column="3" />
</TableRow>

I understand your problem... i tried using wrap_content etc .. but didnt work you have to manually set the height of the EditText.... here's the code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<TableRow
    android:id="@+id/tableRow2"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:weightSum="3" >

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView2"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"
        android:layout_weight="1"
        android:text="TextView" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView5"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"
        android:layout_weight="1"
        android:text="TextView" />

    <EditText
        android:id="@+id/editText1"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="15dp"
        android:layout_weight="1" />



</TableRow>
