Generating file which can Excel easily open and save

Question:

Tag: excel,csv,xslt,format,export

i am exporting data from database to file, which can Excel read and save.

Do you know any good format, which can excel easily open and easily save? Thanks a lot!


Answer:

This question is off-topic, but IMHO Excel 2002/2003 XML Format would be the best choice in your circumstances.

The reason for this is that the data in this format is typed - so you will not see numbers misinterpreted as dates, or phone numbers with leading zeros stripped. I am not aware of the kind of problems you describe, so I cannot say for sure how those will be affected.
