Try something like this...

<CFQUERY name="Get_CSV" datasource="yourDataSource">
SELECT       F1,F2
FROM       yourTable
</CFQUERY>

<CFSET TXTOUTPUT = "">
<CFSET OUTFILE = "C:\testFile.csv">

<CFSET TXTCOLUMNS = '"F1","F2"'>
<CFIF #FILEEXISTS(OUTFILE)# IS "No">
      <CFFILE ACTION="WRITE" FILE="#OUTFILE#" OUTPUT="#TXTCOLUMNS#">
</CFIF>
<CFLOOP QUERY="Get_CSV">
      <CFSET TXTOUTPUT = '"#F1#","#F2#">
      <CFFILE ACTION="APPEND" FILE="#OUTFILE#" OUTPUT="#TXTOUTPUT#">      
</CFLOOP>
<CFSET filename = "testFile.csv">
<CFHEADER  NAME="content-disposition" VALUE="attachment; filename=#filename#">
<CFCONTENT  TYPE="APPLICATION/MSEXCEL" FILE="#OUTFILE#" DELETEFILE="TRUE" RESET="TRUE">
