I want to write a List into an
file. The List is essentially retrieved from a MySQL DB. Is there a code that can be used to achieve this? Please help...

Welcome to the Ranch.
Sorry that nobody has replied earlier. Don't know about direct input to Excel, but it is quite easy to change the output to comma separated format; Excel opens csv files by default.

Welcome to JavaRanch!
If you just need a file that opens in Excel, I second the CSV format. If you need to have Excel formatting, you can use an Excel library. The open source
is a good one.
You still have to loop through the result set and output the results in CSV/HSSF. You could do generically in one place for your app though.
