If you have Microsoft Query installed, you can choose Data->Get External
set linesize 130 spool c:temporacle_query.txt select * from my_table; spool off
A file will be created that contains the output from SQL*Plus. I then
choose File->Open in Excel and select the file that I created. Excel
will recognize that this is a flat file and will start a wizard to map
the data to columns in the spreadsheet. Follow along with the wizard
and your data will be placed into the spreadsheet.
