You can save a file in comma-delimited format directly from Excel (File, Save As...).

Then you'll just need a text editor that can save the file using the EBCDIC character set instead of binary. Google for that. There are plenty of freebie text editors around.
A .csv file _is_ an ASCII comma-delimited file. If you have a native Excel file, then as dportas says, use Excel's File, Save As, and choose file type "CSV (comma-delimited)" to get to that format, then convert to EBCDIC.

EBCDIC is an alternative character set to ASCII, used primarily on IBM mainframes.

or, are you just asking for that file to be converted and sent back ?
