I have a command for DOS nbtstat -a Comp_name
Comp_name should be the one connected in LAN.
Now the MAC address displayed should be transfered to excel sheet automatically from DOS

Well you can't transfer DOS output to Excel directly, but you can do

nbtstat -a Comp_name > output.csv

that will send all the output to a file named output.csv. Then you can try to open that file in Excel. I said try, becuase the output of nbtstat is not all formatted text.

The .csv extension is case is not of relevance. The commandline will write the output data to the file as plain text even if you specify the extension as .csv

I know that, it is plain text. But I made a conscious decision to tell him to use .csv because, I have no idea about his familiarity with importing to excel. Both .txt and .csv file can be imported to excel. If the extention is .csv excel will attempt to take a crack on it, but if it is .txt file, you have to tell it. If you read my last sentence there was a hint towards that.
