  • A friend of mine showed me this trick, if you change your output file.txt to file.xls, even though it's in text format, Excel will see the xls extension, realize it's a text file (which it already knows how to convert) and open the file without any problems. This may work for your situation (change the extension to .doc instead of .xls) if you don't have an fancy markup, but if you do have some fancy markup you may be better off with the HTML that someone else suggested.
