Default want to create a xls file

I am writing a unix script through which I want to run a sql query and stores it's output in xls file.
I tried to create csv file (through spooling)but this is having a problem b'coz one of my field is having comma in itself.so if i'll make colsep as comma it will also break my field in to two parts.Thats why I want to create a xls file directly.I am using sqlplus command in my unix script.
Please help me out

Hi vinita24,

you can create csv file like this , put double quote around your data. It will not break.


hope this works.

you also might want to check out some Perl stuff some people wrote, with perl scripts allows you to write directly to an xls file.
