Read KBA 2188784 - Exporting list splits one column into several ones, or jump to 960759 - ALV export: Export to Excel with special character "|" (note the last note suggested a modification of standard, but nowadays you can do it with implicit Enhancement)

NB: Using this option only generates a flat text file (a spool) not an actual Excel file. Use other options to generate a XLSX file.
