Attached are 2 small sheets which should demonstrate the problem.

The file bill2.gnumeric is the result of opening an OpenOffice .sxc file
in AbiWord. The raw data is there, but a lot of the formatting is lost,
and various cells are relocated from their original positions. Running a
print preview on this (unedited) file shows truncated text at, for
instance cells B1, B5, A12, A14, C31, and others.

When you said Abiword, I suspect you meant Gnumeric ? It would be nice
to see the openoffice file to understand why the import did not work
properly. It should have.

The file bill.gnumeric had the original OpenOffice formatting reinstated
in the new Gnumeric sheet (bill2), and the file was then saved under the
new name. All columns were widened after your advice yesterday, and this
resolved the date printing issue, but does not seem to have assisted
with the text truncation. Although it should be noted that the text
truncated is now in different locations to that in "bill2". For instance
cell B2 is now truncated where it was not in the previous sheet. 

Hmm, I don't see any truncated text in either bill nor bill2 using the
gnumeric development version. I'll be trying 1.2.5 later today. Which
version of Gnumeric and libgnomeprint/libgnomeprintui are you using?

The font was changed from "Sans" in the imported sheet "bill2" to
"Arial" in "bill". I'm not sure how far this is significant.

this shouldn't have anything to do with text truncation but it is

This is puzzling.
