Crystal Report export Excel has fix column width

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
My page has Crystal Report exporting the file to PDF and Excel.  Both exports the files fine.  However, in the Excel report, the columns always appear to have the same width when I open it.  Some columns have long text and the column width at the time of opening the file are not wide enough to show all the content of the rows.  The users need to resize the columns to see all the content displayed.  I have set the property: FixedColumnWidth = False in the code before the report is exporting but it does not make the columns width vary by their contents.  Any other ideas how this should be done?

Thank you.
