To the person interested in importing data from Excel to Mathematica, the 
clipboard will work easily.

With a column of n numbers in Excel, Insert a column of n-1 commas to the 
right. The Excel reads each row as a record top to bottom of file. Copy Paste 
both columns to notepad for pure text. In this step or the next, insert 
braces front and end of the file. Copy then Paste and Discard to Mathematica. 
Partition or Flatten at will. 

It works very nicely. enjoy!
