Hai you can read an excel file by creating a odbc datasource and then treat the excel sheet as an table and take the values(this can be done using ODBC Datasource in Windows by selecting Windows Excel Driver)

create a tab by name "XYZ" ie an excel sheet with the sheet named as XYZ

if you have three columns namely
Name,Id,Country in the excel sheet. and you want to get the name you can do so like this

query="Select Name from [XYZ$]" \ the $ sign is required for ODBC properties

Executing this returns the resultset you require and you can manipulate it

Hope this helps
