You can do whatever you want within the excel sheet:
Check out this example:
var
 i,j:integer;
 WBk: _Workbook;
 Ws: _WorkSheet;
 StartLine:integer;
 Frm:OLEVariant;
begin
StartLine:=10;
XLApp1.Connect;
XLApp1.Visible[0]:=false;
WBk := XLApp1.Workbooks.Add(EmptyParam, 0);
WS := XLApp1.ActiveSheet as _Worksheet;

 WS.Cells.Item[0,0].Value := 'Employee name';
 WS.Cells.Item[0,1].Value := 'Employee address';
 XlApp1.Visible[0]:=true;
end;


The ideea is that you can write anything to the excel worksheet
using:
 WS.Cells.Item[0,0].Value := 'your text';
Of course a dataset it's also easy to export.
