Jan Lolling's Custom components- tFileExcel components solved my problem.

Here is how it works

1. name cell A1= Process_date in the excel template

2. go to talend and use  tFileExcelNamedCellOutput after tFileExcelSheetOutput and before tFileExcelWorkBookSave

configure the cell output:

cell name                      Value

"process_date"          context.ProcessDate
