    1. First, you may need to be familiar with the following:
    HTML, XML, XSD, DTD, XSL,...ect.

    2. Like any "format", your data must have a very specific structure in Excel to be able to generate cxml.

    3. Is this a "Punch-Out" system, or a "Catalog" system?

    4. This seems to be the most widely referenced documet of this subject:

    That all being said...
    If the customer requires documents in this format, can you ask them to provide a sample Excel file and the resulting cxml document for comparison?

    As of this writing, I can find no utility to convert/save an Excel file in the cxml format.
