CSV format can be imported by many spreadsheets including Excel. The only thing that would trip it up is if the value for one key is another table.

A table is just a value for every key and sometimes tables can be nested as I pointed out above. Probably the best format to represent it as would be a JSon file and view it from there. If that's the case it would be better imported into a database like Access instead of Excel.

JSon file exporting and importing has been promised in the next version of Hollywood already.
I'm on registered MorphOS using FlowStudio.

And before Hollywoods new version is available, you can try Clydes JSON parser for Hollywood: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2240&p=12328&hilit=json#p12328

I am actually planning on trying it soon myself too.
