I am solving the following differential equation. I need to get the values of y[x] for x ranging from 1 to 30. I need to get this data into excel. How can I extract it from Mathematica ?

Stefan = 0.6929;
s = NDSolve[{y'[
     x] == (Stefan*((x/2) - (((x^2) - 1)/(4*x*Log[x])))) + (x*Log[x]),
    y[1.00000001] == 0}, y[x], x]

All your answers are right there in the documentation:

If you look into the NDSolve help, the first example gives you the correct way of writing the code. For your problem:

Stefan = 0.6929; 
s = NDSolve[{y'[x] == (Stefan*((x/2) - (((x^2) - 1)/(4*x Log[x])))) + (x Log[x]),y[1.00000001] == 0}, y[x], {x, 1, 30}];

You can form the data list using the command Table:

val = Table[Evaluate[y[x] /. s], {x, 1, 30}]

You can export the data to excel using the command Export:

Export["data.xls", val]
