If you save as tab-separated CSV file, it should do the trick since Excel
expects CSV to be separated by tab by default.
Alternatively you can save the comma separated values file with extention
".txt" and then ask excel to open the *.txt files. This will bring up a
wizard where you can modify all the import settings.
