-table- typically is more generous than -tabulate- in this respect.

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-.
