Unfortunately your question isn't clear. Are you asking how to write a tab into a Fortran output file? If yes, here's an example:

Code:
      open (unit=10, file='excel.txt')
write (10,*) 3.14159, char(9), 2.71828, char(9), 1.4142
close (unit=10)
end

This produces a tab-delimited text file with three numbers, that excel can read. I had to click through two screens in Excel's file-import wizard, first to choose that the file is delimited, second to choose the delimiter (tab). Each number goes into a separate cell.

I write program follow as below.I have problem data after write to excel file don't seperate cell.Please suggest me.
Algorithm
program writefile
implicit real*8(a-h,o-z)
integer*8 a1,a2,a3
real*8 b1,b2,b3
b1=1.0d+00
b2=2.0d+00
b3=3.0d+00

open(unit=7,file='writefile.xls',status='unknown')
write(7,300) b1,b2,b3
*,2x,'Height',f6.1/
*,2x,'Deflect',f6.1)
stop
end
Result
Height 2.0
Deflect 3.0

Writing a true Excel file would be complex. I assume you're trying to write a comma delimited text file that Excel can then import. If you suffiix the file name with .CSV, Excell will assume it's a comma separated value text file. Otherwise, you'll have to select comma delimited file as the file type when you do the import.

Thank you very much
