Hello.
I'm doing a simple two-way tabulation. The first variable is value-labelled, with some rather long values; some are as much as 46 characters. (I believe that the fact that they are label values is irrelevant; if it were a string-valued variable, I believe that the result would look the same.) The output is coming out with those values (in the left margin), truncated to 21 characters. Does anyone know a way to make them appear in full value? That may look absurd, but it is what I need for now.

My goal is to import the output to an Excel table - with full-length string values. As it stands now, I am manually fixing the ones that were truncated. So maybe there is some other way besides -tabulate-.

Thanks if anyone cah help.
