Thank you Debjani Mallick!
This is a terrific tutorial that worked right out of the box. I was wondering though, is there a way to return the table columns in a different order than alphabetical, order by current column order or something like that?

Thanks again!

We are trying method 2 and we are not writing data to new columns, instead its writing to a new line for every column. Also it's sorting the data in alphabetical order.

Title: Reply: How do you specify sheetname

For specifying the arguments using the second write method, the syntax is:
writeExcelSheet('table name','datasource name','path to the excel sheet with sheet name');
This will create a sheet with the default name. Using the second write method, its first of all not possible to specify worksheet names and secondly, its also not possible to write to multiple tabs of an excel sheet through this method. But the first method specified, accomplishes both the tasks.

So, in example two of writing to an excel worksheet, it says to specify the fileName as the full path along with the excelsheetname. I need to write to multiple sheets. How exactly do I specify the sheetname?
