It will just be a dump of the current query results, possibly a whole 
table, so It will need to create new tabs when they reach 65K since most 
of my users are still on office 2003. I guess I could use 
Spreadsheet::WriteExcel, I just need to figure out the mechanics of 
getting the data into the sheetand something to keep track of the number 
of rows and create new tabs as needed.
