First import into you personal PST file, then from there move to Public Folders
You will not be able to directly import the excel sheet to the contact folder under a Public folder.
Save the excel spreadsheet in .csv format
1. What you can do is, create a Test contact folder under Mailbox hierarchy
2. Then use the import & export option in Outlook to import the contacts to Test folder
Go to File=> Import & Export=> Select from another program or file=> Comma Separated vales(windows)=> Browse the csv file => Click Next => Select the Test Contact folder
3. Then copy and paste the contact information from Test contact folder to the Public folder contact
