I would also be interested in the Word formatting instructions (my Excel
knowledge is abysmal).

Danielle we take a different approach here than exporting to Excel. I like
to export to Word, and then use the Tables formatting in Word to get the
data arranged in a line the way I like it. If I want everything on a single
line, I have to juggle the font size and margins, and sometimes shift from
portrait to landscape. It's easier to do that in Word than in Excel.
As Barbara West noted, however, it gets complicated when you are exporting
data that comes from both the bib and item records. When multiple item
records (either for copies or vols) are associated with a bib, it can take a
little juggling to get things formatted properly, but it can be done.
The key, in this case, is to put all the bib data fields at the beginning
and the item record fields, including the number of checkouts, at the end.
I have some instructions for formatting in Word if you like.
