TransferSpreadsheet And Excel Formatting Problem

I have a TransferSpreadsheet process in my Access 97 database that sends
data out to an Excel spreadsheet formatted with a Times New Roman 10 point
font, centered text, etc...

This always works fine until data gets exported into a cell on the
spreadsheet that never had data in it before. The data uses the default font
(usually MS Sans Serif), is not centered, and will not wrap. When I
originally formatted the spreadsheet I selected the entire sheet for
wrapping and formatted each entire column as centered with the font that I
wanted. Is there a way around this without having to write an Excel macro
and call it from within Access with Excel automation? Why does Excel not
remember formatting for empty cells?
Any help would be much appreciated.
