Hi !

Being Python as rich in libraries, probably there's already a library
to create .XLS files.

Before finding that, you can try the CSV format: simply put a comma to
separate any fields you want in your values.

And of course, a comma will finish your line.

That way, Excel or any other spreadsheet program will understand what
you want them to understand.

All the best,
