    If you have SQL 7.0 and up anywhere then you can use DTS from there to pull data out of SQL 6.5 and export to Excel.

    Otherwise you will need to use BCP.

    Not with SQL, but you can with something like VBA in Excel or VBA via a VBScript. There are plenty of examples in the SDK for VBA for Excel on MSDN.
