I am new to Java, so my solution might not be very sofisticated. But it works.

//Here is the code I used:
//This is an HTML or JSP page, that is used to pass the query to a seocnd page:

<head><title>Pass SQL Query </title></head>

String query = "Select * from Customers";

<p><font size="+1">[<a href="excel.jsp?SQL=<%=query%>">Export results to Excel</a>]</font>


/*Second JSP Page will look something like this:
*Notice that I used a Bean here "JDBC_Wrapper" to open the database *connection and execute the query.

<%@ page import = "java.sql.*, somefolder.JDBC_Wrapper" %>
<jsp:useBean id="myCBean" class="somefolder.JDBC_Wrapper" scope="session"/>

<TITLE>Export Data to Excel</TITLE>

String SQL = request.getParameter("SQL");
ResultSet rs = myCBean.queryTable(SQL);

//Display results in excel

<table border="1" >
<th>Column1 Name</th>
<th>Column2 Name </th>


<%while ({ %>
<td><%= rs.getString(1) %></td>
<td><%= rs.getString(2) %></td>
<% } %>

use csv!!! that is comma separator value.

String x="bla, bla";

when you write it in csv the result will be "bla bla" in 2 separtes boxes.

best of luck
