CFContent is not creating Excel file

I am facing a weird problem with my ColdFusion server. I cannot export data to Excel using the <cfheader> and <cfcontent> tags. If I create an Excel file, the content will have all the table, tr, td tags. It had been long time since I tried this so think I must have changed some settings in CFAdmin.

I will try to fix this and post an update. If any of you have an idea on how to resolve this, please comment.

***** UPDATE  *****
This was actually not a problem with ColdFusion. The Open Office was the problem. It was not rendering the content correctly.
