deenessen - you haven't given us much to work on, but presumably your GUI has a button that, when pushed, you want to save some data to an Excel file. Assuming that GUIDE is being used, then your pushbutton callback would look like
function pushbutton1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
% hObject handle to pushbutton1 (see GCBO)
% eventdata reserved - to be defined in a future version of MATLAB
% handles structure with handles and user data (see GUIDATA)
% get and format your data
myData = randi(42, 10,3);
% write your data to file
writematrix('myFile.xlsx', myData);
Depending upon your version of MATLAB, you could use writematrix or xlswrite.
