For simple enough tasks, I think you can make SQL*plus output HTML,
which Excel could suck up directly.
For a sripted approach, I would recommend getting an ADODB.Connection
object to your Oracle database
, opening an ADODB.Recordset against the connection
, setting an Excel.Range object to Cell A1
, enumerating your recodset field names into the cells of row 1
, setting the Exel.Range to Cell A2
, using the ridiculously fast CopyFromRecordset method of the
  Excel.Range to dump the recordset to the sheet.
