One method is to write your output as comma delimited format using
that your user can open in a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet program then organizes your information in the way you want it.
out = new
If this is interactive and you are returning the data as part of a gui response, you can set the headers in your response to automatically activate the application you want your document to use.
response.setHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=\""
+ fileName + "\"");
