I have an oracle DBA exporting a querys results from an 11g database and the format it is outputting in is far from user freindly. i.e. its been output in a txt file but its not in any sort of tabular format.

I beleive the default tool to retreive rows is sql + in oracle (you may correct me), is there an easy way to export the rows in something that will be easily imported to excel, i.e. csv format, or at least a tabular format.

One last question in 11g, which table will list all database accounts, account status, password last set dates etc.

you can get the account details in dba_users, all_users and sys.user$ tables but the password is encrypted in the DB.

For tables, have a look in ALL_TAB_COLUMNS - like this:

select
OWNER
,table_name
,column_NAME
,data_type
,data_length
from
 all_tab_columns
where
 OWNER not in ('SYS','SYSTEM')
order by owner,table_name, column_name;
