Dump the table as a tab-separated values file and import that into your
spreadsheet.  You will need to dump all of the tables associated with
your orders;  The standard demo uses the transactions and orderline

Presumably, you want to dump your data to a spreadsheet so that you
can analyse it in some way.  You could create a page that analyses the
data and displays the results in the Interchange admin system instead.
That would save all of the time and expense spent monkeying about with
Microsoft products, and you wouldn't need to reboot every ten minutes
either. :-)
