You say that it doesn't create an excel file...I was under the impression that the spreadsheetML would be able to be opened as an excel spreadsheet?
A csv would be great except for the fact that I need multiple sheets...I dont need formulas or anything else like that,
I just need my data on multiple sheets.. would spreadsheetML output not do this properly?
Yes I ran the xml and xsl through the org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process class and was rewarded with some spreadsheetML...
But if I try open it with Open Office as a spreadsheet it opens Open Office Writer with the text content instead although
I did save the output of the transformation as .xls ...
Maybe I should spend a couple weeks figuring out this xsl stuff before I waste more time on this.

I don't think there ever was an application besides MS Office that could make sense of the Office 2003 XML formats. This has nothing to do with XSLT.
