may be you can export them into excel in subset of batches by using a where clause accordingly to restrict the record count returned. you can use one of the unique id columns or something of that sort to differentiate the batches right.

If you do not want to use toad export functionality at all because of the limitation, then i believe you need to code pl/sql to write into the files in the required formats. you can use utl_file package procedures/functions to write to the OS files.

Are you using TOAD simply to execute the SELECT statement, or perhaps you're adding some manual manipulation?  There may be other factors in play that restrict you.  I often debug by removing any 3rd party product and using SQL*Plus to locate syntax errors.

BTW, the current version of Oracle's (free) SQL*Developer allows a query to be run with certain hints that easily format the result set.  For example, SELECT /*+ CSV */... will forego the need to manually parse all those field delimiters.  HTML, XML, the list goes on.
