saving report as an excel file

I have a report, which I need to save as an excel file.

The data is in a bean.
I retrieve the data from the bean, store in an arraylist. set the arraylist as an attribute of request.

in the jsp, i retrieve the list from the request attribute, iterate and store the contents in a stringbuffer.

the string buffer is as follows:

<TR><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>09-05</TD><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0
C0C0'>036EL0509662B</TD><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>036</TD><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>03605626</TD><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>11
/28/2006</TD><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>BP</TD><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>09/22/2006</TD><TD align='center' bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>MOUNTAIN STA
TES </TD> </TR>

The response type is :

<% response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel"); %>

However, when I see the data in the excel file, 09-05 becomes 5-sep, 036 becomes 36 and 03605626 becomes 3605626.

What am i missing?

I don't think that you are missing anything. Excel is probably providing its own formatting of the data.
