An easy way would be to create a SSRS report (embeded or not) based on the same query and use the report export function to save to Excell.

Could you please give me a code or the link for the SSRS report.
Thanks in advance.

In Visual Studio, right click on your project in the solution explorer.
Add new item
create a test report using the wizard.
Once you create the report, go add a new windows form to your project and from the tool box, under reporting add a Microsoft report viewer to the form.  using the tag in the report viewer item, point to the report you just created.  

Create a link to that new form from your list view form.  

Here is more information on SSRS reports.
