JavaScript can't do that. You need to write server-side code (like a servlet) that generates XLS or CSV.

ActiveX controls are generally a security risk, and thus disabled. That's the price one needs to pay for using them.

By the way, you're aware that this code ties you to a single browser on a single operating system? Plus, the user would need to have Excel installed.
