I checked it, but i want to do formatting in excel & it is not done.
e.g. how to set the headers as bold?

The easiest way would be to generate an excel file without bold, change a single cell to be bold, and then diff the 2 files, you then know what code you need to make it bold
Repeat for all sorts of formating you want

Or... google it, chances are its been done before

You could use XML. Excel supports XML Spreadsheets. You could easily format it. Not only in excel but also in word too.

heres a link:
