Using jQuery, you'd do something like this:

$('#save_to_excel').click(function(e) {
     if (!confirm("Are you sure?")) {
          //'Cancel' was clicked, so stop the link from being followed
          e.preventDefault();
     }
})

FYI - The modern, best practice approach to Javascript is to keep it un-obtrusive - i.e out of the HTML!!
