Thanks for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, the export routine appears
to be limited to handling very regular tables (like an L by M by N
table), so you need to play a few (albeit minor) tricks to get the M
by N tables to export correctly.

I was hoping for something more automated if it's reasonably easy and
from Mathematica*. Ultimately, I don't want to invest too much time
on this since I would prefer to spend the time finding ways of making
the current need for Excel redundant.

* For example, adding column headings for each table is as simple as:
  Append[#, {"Heading 1", "Heading 2", ..., "Heading M"}]& /@ data
