You can create a CSV file of your report by

  1. Appending commas after each field and aliasing the whole query

    select empno ||','|| ename, ||','|| job CSV_Line     from emp;

2 Creating a default tabular layout and embedding commas after each field (a bit more fiddly).

Look at reports help in what settings to do when creating an ascii report.
Remove margins etc.
Save the output to a file.
You can then use OLE automation to kick off excel with this filename.
