Data format AFTER import into Mathematica from Excel.xls worksheet


I have a large Excel worksheet (200 columns, 4,000 rows).  Every column has a unique and carefully chosen title/label.

I'm attempting to use it within Mathematica to create a large number of contour plots (1,000) -- using three columns at a time, for x, y, z.

The import, I suppose, occurs.  At least it appears to have.

Here's the question:

-- Is Mathematica using my column titles, so that I can refer to them in commands subsequent to import?

-- If not, is there any format I can put my data into to begin with so that Mathematica will readily recognize my named columns?


I certainly wanted to be getting on with the contour plots (SmoothDensityHistogram), but am having trouble getting my data into the required form.

Any help appreciated.
