Microsoft Excel: Yet another bug.

I tried importing a terribly formatted LTSpice output file into Excel today, only to find that when you use fixed column widths, using their handy little tool that lets you put verticle lines between text - that those lines don't actually mean anything.  As you scroll left and right in the view, the lines jump around left to right, and end up somewhere you don't want them.

How long has Microsoft been making Excel? It still has stupid problems like these, in simple features? And you want me to buy a new version, when you can't even get the old version right?  I can only imagine what bugs were added when they switched to that awful new user interface.

Side note: it looks like LibreOffice seems to work.  Progress continues...
