    I see what you mean Martin, but I believe that this is not some issue caused on our side, but a feature of Excel itself to show "..." instead of full text if it would not fit in there.

    Can you please double click the field in Excel and see if you are shown the rest of the text?

    If it is shown then it is just a matter of formatting the fields.

    Unfortunately there are differences through their versions how to achieve this, but is usually similar and I was able to find this guide that would give you some insight into cell formatting: http://www.gcflearnfree.org/excelxp/12/print

    If the text is not fully shown to you when you double click on it, do let us know.
