In the past I have done this, but it is not very straight forward.
First you save the model tree file to a TXT format. Then you can open a TXT format file in Excel, but then the fun starts. In this process there is an import wizard that controls how Excel delimits the information or in other words how it divides the content to different columns. I haven't done this in a while, but usually I had to take the best options for dividing up the columns and then there was a lot of manual clean up in Excel to get it loooking close to a usable format in Excel.
Recently I did the same similar operation, but with saving a BOM table to a CSV file. Coming from the BOM table format made for a much better import. Using the comma as the delimiter resulted in a file that came in looking like the drawing BOM file.
If there are better ways to do this I am interested in learning what they are.
