    how to dump a query result into a spraed sheet?????

    Hi all

    Is there any way we can dump the result of sql query(on oracle) into a spread sheet?????

    for example::

    select eno, ename, job, dept, mgr from emp;

    and the query fetches say about 100000 records and the width of a paper is not enough as the result is more than twice of a A4 size paper. So i want spool the extract into a spreadsheet.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    why not set ODBC data source and use MS excel to get
    your data directly?

    hi.

    Spool the result into a text file and open it into excel.

    Do

    spool out.csv
    select empno||','|| ename||','|| job||','|| deptno||','|| mgr from emp;
    spool off

    This will create a comma seperated output and spool it in a .csv file which you can directly open in an excel sheet.

    U can use Spool and for readable format, from SQL prompt, u can set ur enviroment by setting linesize->custome and type the Nunber, and set the Pagesize to custome and type the Number.

    By this, u will be able to increase ur horizental & vertical lines.

    The spool file which u have created can be opened in Excel.
