[CASE-OPENED]EXL07 column width sometimes disrupted with across

I have some examples where the column width of across columns in Excel 2007 becomes too wide, due to higher level across values that are very long.

I managed to also make it happen in a CAR example, see below.

DEFINE FILE CAR
SUMMARY1/A200 = 'Summary';
SUMMARY2/A200 = 'This is a very long line that causes EXL07 column width to be disrupted. EXL2K, HTML and PDF output do style this correctly';
SUMMARY3/A200 = 'Does anyone have a solution for this?';
END

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM SALES
BY COUNTRY
ACROSS SUMMARY1 AS ''
ACROSS SUMMARY2 AS ''
ACROSS SUMMARY3 AS ''
ACROSS BODYTYPE AS ''
ACROSS SEATS    AS ''
ON TABLE PCHOLD AS 'sales' FORMAT EXL07
END


When output is in HTML, PDF and EXL2K it sizes the columns correctly, but not in EXL07.
Is there a way to force a better column size in EXL07 or is this a bug?
I am on 7706M.

Martin.

I opened a case for this (13293557) and today they confirmed this is a bug.
