I have generated Word/XML documents, but not Excel ones.

It is simplest when there is an existing Word document that conforms to
a style template; such a .docx file can be unzipped and gutted, new
content generated that uses the template, and the resulting directory
zipped back up again.  Generating the complete .docx structure de novo
is more difficult.

This likely applies to Excel Office Open files as well, but I canbt say
for certain.
