Like skinning a cat, there is more than one way to do this. Here is one

Lexique Pro, like Toolbox works by having flags (backslash codes) to
delimit data fields so you need to add these as columns to your spreadsheet
to the left of each data field. Create empty columns before each and every
field (column), insert the relevant flag, eg. \lx before headwords, \ps
before part of speech column etc. Export the lot as a tab delimited file
then use a text editor to insert paragraph marks before each flag
(backslash code) and change the tabs to a space.

You need to add a specification at the top of the file to tell Toolbox or
Lexique Pro it is a lexicon and then you should be able to open it with
that software.
