SQL Query Analyzer to Excel

Good Day Experts!

Hope you all can help me with my dilemna.  I have query results in QueryAnalyzer.  I need to get it to Excel.  I cannot save as CSV as some of the column values have commas in them.  

What is the best way to get this data into Excel?

Thanks for responding.  But I am not sure where to put the query that I was using in QueryAnalyzer?
Select a cell (from the new created table) go to Data - Connections - Properties - Definition:
Command Type: SQL
Command Text: Your query
I cannot afford to import the entire contents of the SQL table into Excel and then query it.
after you click the Finish button of the wizard, a new window will appear, where you chose the range to place the data. Click the properties button on that window, click the Definition tab, change the "Command Type" to SQL, and place your query on the "Command text" area
Ok, I will try now.  I was not aware of this in Excel and appreciate your patience with my first time use.

It is working great.  Thanks for the help. I know have another tool in my back pocket.

try the PowerPivot feature. You're gonna love it ;)
