I just did some additional testing and it actually seem to be a formatting
problem with the LibreOffice Tables!

Before I had minized the columns to the width of each column (highlighted
and doubleclicked the columns so they would adjust). But somehow they never
adjust perfectly. There is always a little space in front.

So what I did was increasing the width of some columns a little bit and when
you export the file to fixed-width csv, this is what comes out:

So how do I tell LibreOffice to adjust its columns without leaving a space
in front???

I think the fixed length inserts a space for reading and to help delimit
the column. All columns are x characters wide with a leading space.

Most programs I have seen that import from various text/csv type files
allow one to specify the delimiter when importing including using TAB,
semicolon, etc.

Looking up the .prn file extension indicates that is most commonly
generated when using "Print to text" and allows printing of the document
without needing software capable of opening the original file.
