do you mean you want the source of the PRTF transfered to excel or you want the created spool to be inserted inside excel. ?
If this is option 2, please explain your goal for wishing that because i do not understand what that will bring to you.
Using Operation navigator you may move your spool to a .TXT file pc based.
And this one may be easily, like any other file/object.
Generally, you would do it the same way you'd take the spooled output from a print request of a formatted Windows Word document and open that in Excel. (Most likely you'd get garbage in Excel because Excel has no idea what to do with spooled files created in a complex printer data stream.)
In short, an AFPDS object isn't compatible with a program like Excel. AFPDS isn't a trivial data stream.
Create the output as a SCS printer file instead of AFPDS. Extracting clean text out of SCS objects is far easier.
