Yes, you can read data from xl.

reference excel object library in your project

Dim xl As Excel.Application

   If xl Is Nothing Then
       Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
       xl.DisplayAlerts = False
   End If

   xl.Workbooks.Open "your file name"
   xl.DisplayAlerts = True
   yourVariable = xl.sheets("sheet name").range("your column, row).value
   msgbox yourVariable
   Set xl = Nothing
