If you have TOAD, you can load the EXCEL file easily into the DB.
If you cannot install any application on the server, then I would suggest making use of SQL Loader. For this you need to save the XLS file as CSV file first. Then write some simple code to load the data into tables. Check the below links for making use of SQL Loader utility
