It means that excel sees that the extension is xls but the data in the file doesn't match the structure of the xls. How are you generating the xls file? For example if you are just producting a comma delimited file and you slap an xls extension, it is not an xls, it is still a csv.

Note that:
1/ the Test (sub-)forum is just to test the post itself NOT to post a real question; for real question post it in the appropriate (sub-)forum
2/ as far as I can see, this question is not related to Oracle and so has nothing to do with this site.

The easiest way is to simply put an extension of .txt on the file and keep using the tab delimited fields. Excel will open it with no problems. Depending on your Database level, there are open source packages that can be used to generate actual xls file. If you want to go that route see the link
