          It depends on the layout project but you have basically 3 options:

           

          1) Datamerge

          Will be fine if you have a very static and iterative structure given that you turned your excel into CSV first

           

          2) XML

          This one is less obvious as it would imply turning your excel into XML.

           

          3) EasyCatalog

          Will be the most robust and smooth solution but also the expensive one compared to the two first ones.

           

          Once again it depends mostly on the layout project.
