I have a web application I built in 2003 and C# and it works great and all is well. but once and a while I get a request for a dump of all the record in an excel file so the admin can do some quick sorting and other stuff that the application can do.
So I do this manually when requested, but I am wondering because I have never done this before....but is there a way to write in C#, 2003 with framework 1.1 something that would pull all data from a table and write it to an excel file.
If I can automate this, it will make things much easier, but I have never done this before, any examples or experience or feedback on this thought?

The very simplest approach is to write the table values to XML.  
'Slightly' more complex, you can write the table values out to a comma separate file, dataDump.CSV, that Excel can easily open.
The CSV route is my personal choice for simple, fast ocassional uses.
If you want to go a little more in depth, it's also possible to write xls files as well.
