Cognos doesn't create true binary excel flles (can't, actually, because that file format is owned by Microsoft).  Cognos Excel files are essentially HTML files with excel specific tags.  As such, they can really only be view by Excel, or applicaitons that recognize the alternate HTML-based file format

If they can only be viewed by excel and I have excel mobile on my phone why won't they open?

Because it's "Excel MOBILE" and not "Excel". It doesn't understand the HTML codes.
