There are many ways to move the spool file down to EXCEL, but I don't think you want to do that.  You would get an 80 position field that would be useless to your users.  The best thing to do is to make what should be a quick mod to the report program.  Create a physical file that contains all the fields (use same field names) written to the report in the detail line.  Add this file to your program as output and where ever the detail line is written to the report add a line of code to write to the new physical file.  Be sure to clear this file before calling the program.  When the program is done, simply use Client Access to transfer the file down to Excel.  Using that method you will retain the values of the fields in a usable format for your users.
