Does Star-office provides API to create MS Excel 97 files?

I need to programmatically create a Excel97 file without any component of MSOffice installed on a PC.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I can give you possible workarounds :)

Excel can read delimited files, and those are extremely easy to do. One possible format is to enclose your field in double-quotes, separate each field by a comma, and each line by a standard newline. Excel can read those files !

Yes.  See these pages on the Sun web site for details:
