Using the headless CLI syntax, I'm able to get multiple CSV files as tabs in a single XLS file, which is great. Unfortunately, the columns in the resulting file are not sized appropriately. Is there some way at the CLI to define the widths of the columns?

But what are you referring with "not sized appropriately"?

The columns are either too narrow for the data or way too wide. There are carriage returns in some of the cells to make the contents more human readable; that may be some or all of the reason. Would be nice to have a CLI/scriptable way to statically define the column widths in the file. Appreciate the reply here; I'll keep working the problem.
