In the Works spreadsheet and database list view, individual cells can be formatted as left, center, or right-aligned. If a cell contains text that exceeds the column's width, the cell contents will always be left-aligned, regardless of the alignment you choose.
This behavior is different from Microsoft Excel where the cell's text contents will display and print using the alignment you choose regardless of column width or the number of characters in the cell.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Works for Windows versions 2.0 and 2.0a. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
NOTE: When text exceeds the column width in Works, the text will be truncated if there is data in the corresponding right cell. This is by design.
