When wanting to save as Excel using Excel button from TableTools I am offered only CSV format.
If I manually change and save it as xls and than try to open it with Excel it complains about wrong format.

On all examples with TableTools, try saving as Excel and you will be given option to save as CSV not XLS.
Is this a bug?

    Not a bug, a known, and currently accepted, limitation. See: http://datatables.net/forums/discussion/4043/export-to-excel-wrong-extention-.csv./p1 .

    Proper XLS format (or more likely XLSX) is a future enhancement for TableTools. Patches very welcome :-)
