write RTFText of a field works on a Word file but not on an Excel file

I have a stack where I export the content of a field (fldSource) into
a Word file (thisWordFile.doc) which is in "thisFolder" on the desktop.
I have the following script in a button:
set the defaultfolder to specialfolderpath("desktop") & "/thisFolder"
open file "ThisWordFile.doc" FOR write
write the rtftext of fld "fldSource" to file " ThisWordFile.doc "
close file "ThisWordFile.doc"
launch document "ThisWordFile.doc"
This script is working as expected : the text of the fldSource is
imported in the file "thisWordFile" keeping all formatting features :
colors, underline, italic, bold.
Now, I am trying to do the same but in Excel : exporting the content
of a field "FldSource" in an Excel file (thisExcelFile.xls) which is
in the same folder (thisFolder).
Then a strickly identical script (only changing the file: a file «
ThisExcelFile.xls » instead of "ThisWordFile.doc") does not work. I
don't keep the formatted text of the field in the Excel file; I get
the rtf code of the text :-((
Thank in advance for any help,
Best regards from Grenoble
