In classic ASP exporting a table to Excel, how do I preset an Excel column width?

hi experts,
I have a Classic ASP page which takes data from a database and displays it dynamically as an HTML table.
The table is exported to an Excel file using this code:
      Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"
      Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" & sndName & ".xls"
where sndName is the name I've assigned to the Excel file.

What I need is to preset one of the column widths to a value in Excel of 100.

I've tried doing it by setting the HTML width
both with <td width="100">
and also with <td style="width:100pt;">
but this does not seems to work.

Can anyone help me with this?
