    I have sheet with a frozen column and if I export this sheet, the frozen column (in Excel) will overflow into the next column.

    Everything looks fine in my app but Excel looks messed.

    Check this out:

    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Columns[1].Width = 10;

    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].FrozenColumnCount = 2;

    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 1, 20, 1].Text = "some very long text";


    fpSpread1.SaveExcel(@"c:\test.xls", FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.IncludeHeaders.ColumnHeadersCustomOnly);

    Hmmm, after some investigation ... this seems to be a "feature" of excel.

    To prevent the overflow, I created a column of width 1 to the right of the offending column and put a space in each cell. No overflow.
