I have provide a link of excel file in html page.
That link works fine with IE  & opens file in right format. But with netscape that file opens but the format of the file looks like a txt format not a excel file.

Don't forget Excel is a MS product and therefore IE compatible. NS is not MS and therefore Excel is not NS compatible. Goto http://www.jcsoft.com/docobject/ and get the JC_ActiveDoc(TM) is a Netscape Plug-in that allows you to view Micrsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint right inside Netscape.

However, be aware that not everybody is going to have (or will want) that plug-in. And not everybody will have Excel.

Nearly everybody uses Adobe Acrobat Reader and if not they can download it for free. Therefore the best might be to convert your Excel spreadsheet into a PDF file. If you have no tools to do that you can use a web based service...  http://www.ps2pdf.com/convert/convert.htm

Webwoman is quite correct... I don't have MS Office with Excel, Power Point, Word, Access, etc. on my computer at home... ;-)
