I've used Spreadsheet::WriteExcel Perl module for exporting and
Spreadsheet::ParseExcel for importing, since my customer liked Excel
files much more than CSV (colored and everything :)

It's rather simple to use and the files looked ok in Gnumeric and OO
also. I am not sure but I think IC has support for this already.

Best regards,
