convert Text to Excel

I have some text data generated by a perl script and want to put it into an excel sheet. Is there a perl script that can do this for me, i.e, convert text data to excel?

dunno about a perl script but you can output the file in a comma-delimited format, name the file anything with a ".csv" extension and open it up in excel ... all you need to do then is to fix the column/cell widths ... have fun!
