Description oc 2004-12-09 13:59:37 UTC
Attached test version of a customer spreadsheet.

see numbers gradually increasing in length with 2 decimal places.

Excel (2002), as the number (displayed in General format) gets longer, starts
to drop decimal places so that it is still displayed in the column width.

The result is that if you open the spreadsheet, in Excel it looks good, in
there are a number of displayed.

Tested on WinXP with StarOffice 7 PP4 and StarOffice 8 m65
