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??? -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Problem-when-exporting-exporting-from-CALC-to-a-fixed-length-csv-tp3986825p3986826.html Sent from the Users mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
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. -- Jay Lozier firstname.lastname@example.org -- For unsubscribe instructions e-mail to: email@example.com Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
