The "writeFindFn2xls" function in the sos package include 3
different ways to write an Excel workbook, depending on which packages,
etc., you have installed. I wrote that, because I could not find one
contributed package that as easy to install on every operating system.
This writes an Excel workbook with 3 sheets. That may not be what you
want, but it might provide other options.
