I am trying to download from FreeBMD into Excel spreadsheet format but it seems that I con only download as a .txt document. Is this correct or am I doing something wrong

That is all it does as it's downloading the page basically. However, if you do open the downloaded text file in Microsoft Excel, if the example I just tried is anything to go by, it seems to make a remarkably good job of parsing everything into sensible columns. Your mileage may vary, especially if you don't actually use Excel.
