XML and Excel


has anyone created any PLSQL using the XMLAGG and XMLELEMENT to create XML file output that can be read natively by MS Excel? I'd like to have/make something relatively simple that would have an API like this:
make_me_excel( p_query =>    'select a,b,c from my_table',
p_formats => 'a:text , b:date , c:number ',
p_path =>      '/tmp',
p_fname =>    'myfile.xls');Better yet, have oracle check the dictionary for the column types and auto format accordingly.
I could probably do everything myself except for getting it into the Excel XML format. Any suggestions?


what is the XML format the Excel expects?
if you post that, maybe we can see how to generate that from the given query.
