How much data and how many tables are you talking about ?

If it's a relatively small amount of data / tables, you can define an ODBC connection to the database, launch Excel and import via MSQuery.

I believe SQL Developer (free, from Oracle) can export results to a spreadsheet too.

There are also paid product solutions.

I use PL/SQL developer (Allround Automations is the developer)
TOAD (from Quest / Dell) can probably do something similar too.

Agree with Steve Wales.

SQL Developer is free and can suffice your need. Toad does the same job, but it is paid.

you can put a text box into the form with the data shown as comma separated items and let them cut and paste or add an export button that writes a text file. Both of these will need someone to do some coding.

The cut and paste is slightly error prone but is probably something they would understand quickly. The export file route will need them to load a text file into excel.

you can create an output file from a sql statement like this:-

Spool "an output file.CSV"
Select Id & ",", Name & ",", Address &"," from sometable where Id = 30013213
Spool off

This will create a comma separated file (in the directory you run sql from) which Excel will open and move each field to a separate column

there is no direct export to excell ?
Excel is a complex format, the simplest way to move data is with text, Forms themselves only have exports provided by the person who develops them
