No direct way to do this, but there are a few indirect ways.

1. Take your excell file and save it as CSV format.
   Now with Perl5 and the DBI module for Informix7, you can
   read the CSV, turn it into fields and populate your table.

2. The the Excell material, send it to access and then,
   use Informix ODBC to read Access data.

conversion.
