If we have to add a field to an old query we don't generally rewrite the
code/technique. Any new excel spreadsheet requests are always just written
directly as a CSV from RPG/SQL or whatever language we are using to extract
the data.

I recently tried to write an XSLX natively but didn't get very far. I'd
have to search out a simple example in Python to help me get started.

Yeah. I pushed it on another thread just a few days ago.

However, OP is asking for times, not dates. You could still use the
same approach, creating a table with one row per second (given that
the field in question is 6 digits).

If this is an issue that comes up a lot, it still would be worth
considering. Doesn't introduce any new technology, and doesn't require
any learning if you've already done multifile queries before.
