Hi,
It is very simple and requires no extra formatting because each entry will
be in its own cell:  
1.  In Stata use the command "outsheet using nameoffile.txt"
2.  Go into excel and chose open file.  Chose text files or all files in the
type of file to open or nameoffile.txt may not show up.
3.  Select nameoffile.txt
4.  A window will open in excel asking you what kind of text file it is.
Chose text space delimited - it will be the option that makes the columns
align the way you want them to with a line in between columns, you will note
that by selecting different options the columns may look different.  You
want the option that separates each column.  
OR
You could also use Stattransfer software to transfer your nameoffile.dta (as
saved in Stata) to any other format, for example: nameoffile.dta to
nameoffile.dbf.  
I hope this helps.

You may also want to take a look at the command "insheet" for when you would
like to do the reverse: you have a table in excel with the names of
variables up top, you save it as a text file.  Then you open it in Stata
using insheet.
