Hi, It would really be helpful if the concpets of width points and width fudge are little more eloberative.
Is it in terms of the number of characters that the column width is arrived at after the multiplication as stated above?
What is the physican significance of the option width_points and width_fudge?

It would be better if you didn't add a new post to the end of a post from 3 years ago. If you have a new question, it is better to make a new post and include a reference to the original post that triggered your question.
For questions about the internals of how TAGSETS.EXCELXP specifies width (after the calculations), your best bet for an answer is to work with SAS Tech Support. I believe that Width_Points and Width_Fudge use the number of characters as specified by either DEFAULT_COLUMN_WIDTH or ABSOLUTE_COLUMN_WIDTH in their formulas, so they are impacted by either the widths specified with these 2 suboption OR it calculates the width based on the size of the header text compared to the size of the cell values and picks the larger of the 2 values as the number of characters to use in the formulas. But that is my understanding, I am not sure it is entirely correct. It would be better for you to check with Tech Support on this.
