I used another way:

1) Export data from Mathematica to a text file in CVS format
2) Create a template Excel file which will auto-import this file as external 
data source. Such file may be created in Excel 2003 via the menu command 
Data-> Import external data-> Import data... You can tune it to 
automatically import data every time the file is opened or by demand.

HTH,
Alexey
