Try this below code:

$this->addExportType('*/*/exportExcel', Mage::helper('{module}')->__('Excel'));
public function exportExcelAction()  
    $fileName   = 'excel_name.xls';
    $content    = $this->getLayout()->createBlock('{module}/adminhtml_{module}_grid')->getExcelFile();
    $this->_prepareDownloadResponse($fileName, $content);
