Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Use a delimiter that Excel will understand. Typical Excel import files are CSV (comma separated values) although tabs or spaces are considered delimiters too. As long as you know what delimits the columns & rows, Excel can import a lot of different file formats.
