Are you sure you want to write bare data to a file ending in .xls?
That might be confusing Excel, unless it has grown a sizable brain
with respect to file handling.

You might investigate the csv module that Python offers [1], and use
it to write CSV. Excel can import that very easily. Hell, simply
writing a list of filenames delimited by \n might be importable into
