 step1  establishing a ODBC DSN(e2000) connection to excel2000
  step2  get data you need from the ORACLE database.
  step3  you can connect to e2000 using the ststement of form_dll().
  step4  using 'insert into your_table@ODBC:e2000 your_value',you can realize the data_transfering.

There are several ways to do this.  As noted above, an ODBC connection can provide you with a direct link to data residing in an Oracle database.

However, if you are really looking for an export you have a few other options.
1) Use a formatted query to select into a spool file from SQL*PLUS
2) Write a procedure that writes to a text file (using TEXT_IO from forms or UTL_FILE from the server-side)...similar to 1) above, you will provide the formatting in the queries.
3) use other export utility
