Excel Question

Hi All:

I am using EXCELXP (v 1.127) on SAS 9.3 to create a spreadsheet.

My data contains 1 very large text field - sometimes up to 3,500 bytes.

When I attempt to print this using PROC REPORT it get an error message:

ERROR: At least one column width is wider than LINESIZE.

I am also using ODS HTML to output the data and entire text field is "wrapped" into a single "cell" - which is what

I would like the Excel sheet to do.

Any ideas?

ods listing close;
