Usage of Fmt

Can you please clarify the following query regarding "fmt" command:-
If the length of a line is more than 1024 and I use fmt [fmt -s -w 77] on the 
file, the output file truncate characters of the line after 1024, i.e. It does 
not display the characters of that line after 1024 and continue further with 
next line. So, the output file does not contain all the characters.
Does this command work like this and can I change this setting somehow.
