Exporting data as a CSV file from Unix shell script

Friends...This is the first time i am trying the report generation using shell script... any suggestions are welcome.

Is there a way to set the font size & color when i am exporting the data from unix shell script as a CSV file ?

The following sample data is saved as a .csv file in the shared folder for the end user.Is there a way,i could present the header alone with different fonts/color to the end user.(FYI,the end user will access the csv file using microsoft excel)

Header:

Code:
LOCATION,ATM-ID,REPLENISHED DAY,50,100,500,TOTAL REPLENISHED,50,100,500,TOTAL DISPENSED,UTILIZATION %,50,100,500,TOTAL CASH AVAILABLE,AVAILABLE CASH %

Data:

Code:
XXXX ,12345,23/04/2010,25000,100000,250000,375000,8800,51100,90500,150400,40.11%,16200,48900,159500,224600,59.89%
YYYY ,67890,23/04/2010,25000,100000,250000,375000,2150,13100,36000,51250,13.67%,22850,86900,214000,323750,86.33%

I would do the colour formating in Excel not the shell script. If the formating and columns are always the same then record a macro in Excel to import the data and format the columns.

Thanks steadyonabix ...i was just curious if it can be done through Unix shell scripting...because this can be done through C++.
I ve created a macro in XLS and is getting the output as desired.
