When you say customize in Excel, do you mean that the customize it by hand
in Excel or that they have written an Excel macro so that Excel is working
just as a scripting environment.

If the latter, I'd suggest that something like Beautiful Soup would probably
provide a better environment for this.

Does anyone know how to export content from an HTML source to Excel
spreadsheets?

Our delivery group uses Excel spreadsheets to customize the request elements
customers use in an API (filtering the body request down from hundred of
elements to a manageable handful). Other than somehow generating a CSV
export from a source, I have never tried to single source content into a
Excel spreadsheet output.
