I don't understand your issue totaly but if you have Oracle form v6 on your client then i guess that you are talking to a database RDBMS version x SID x therefore you can use sqlplus (you find that in your V6 installation) and spool your table query to a csv file which you can open with excel.

You can explicitly format the query to produce a delimited string with something along the lines of:

start sqlplus

connect user/password@some database SID


set echo off

set feedback off

set linesize 1000

set pagesize 0

set sqlprompt ''

set trimspool on

set headsep off

spool output.csv

select '"'||column1||'","'||column2||'"' from table_name;

results... results...

spool off


open the csv file in excel
