Yes.  Save it as a comma-delimited text file (.csv) and then import it using CSVDE.  This KB article has instructions:

It would probably be best to do a CSVDE export of existing accounts and then copy the spreadsheet data into the appropriate fields.  This should ensure that the formatting is correct.
