In TWiki:Plugins/ExcelImportExportAddOn, the %TOPIC2EXCEL% variable allows conversion of the following TWiki table to Excel.

It gets confused and throws an error if a cell's content begins with =. It assumes the cell content is an Excel formula.

| *Header 1* | *Header 2* |
| content | =fixed width= |

It should be smart enough to notice when the = is balanced (TWiki fixed width gtext).
