Tab-delimited text can work!
Since you're working on a Mac... Here's what I do for one client and it's close
enough to a spreadsheet for their needs:
-- make the output file
set the fileType to "XCELTEXT"
put reportContent() into url ("file:" & fld "outputFile")
wait 1 tick
-- open the output file if requested
if the hilite of btn "openOutputFile" = true then
launch document (fld "outputFile")
The 'launch' command causes the file to be opened with Excel, since the file was
written with a fileType of "XCELTEXT".
