How do I download an excel file onto the application folder 4.6c?

I'm programming in 4.6c environment. I need to save data as an excel file onto the application server from the background. How can I achieve this? WS_Download fm only works for downloading excel files to the presentation server.

When I say 'excel file', I mean a .xls, .xlsx (prob not possible in 4.6c), or a csv file that can be openned and viewed in excel.

After much research I am starting to question if this is even possible in 4.6c. I need to finish this project very soon.

EDIT: After some more trial and error I don't believe this is possible in my case. Excel can not be used by any of these function modules because the application server does not have access to the excel program. I think I have to create a csv file with open dataset.....
