For that matter, since the OP's ultimate goal is for the data to be
read by Excel, another choice would be to go whole hog and use Scott's

There are other Excel options, including third-party wrappers to
Scott's POI wrapper, such as

And, of course, there is my favorite: iSeries Python and the
third-party xlwt package. (In my opinion, this is much easier to set
up from scratch and use than any RPG/Java solution, plus you then have
Python, which is a worthy addition to any IT tool set.)
