Thanks to Friedrich for this clarification. His advice may be
platform-specific. I have no access to Windows Excel.

Excel (at least version 2003) does not expect a binary file. A
tab-delimited text file with the suffix .xls is opened by Excel
without problems. In fact, saving tab-delimited text files as .xls
with -outsheet- is a convenient shortcut that makes it possible to
open such files in Excel by double-clicking them in Windows Explorer.
It is not necessary to start Excel first and then go to File - Open
to run the import wizard.
