It is easiest to create a .csv file, which you can import into Excel:

--------8<--------
#include <fstream>

int main()
{
    std::ofstream out("myfile.csv");

    // Field names conventionally go at top (not mandatory)
    // columns are separated by commas
    // Strings are quoted (need to double up " to put quotes into strings)
    out << "\"Name\",\"Height\",\n";

    // Here's a row:
    out << "\"Fred\","  
          << 6.2 << ','   // Numbers aren't quoted
          << '\n';

    out.close();
}
--------8<--------

There is the TExcelApplication component in Delphi (ver >4). I think the builder has the same component.
I've put some comments here:
