How to use external phone directories for Cisco CallManager Express

We currently have a Cisco CME unit where the local directory limit of 250 is now being exceeded. Is there anyway to configure an external directory that's fairly straightforward? Something that just reads the contents of a csv or text file etc?

I've come across a few service like ciscoxmlservices and although the directory looks to be what we'd need it seems to want to have to approve each phone / user accessing the list which is a little annoying? Any help or suggestions appreciated.

Sorry, the question was posted 'against the clock' as it was a last minute realization that the hard cap was too low. Adding the directory wasn't a worry I was hunting for something to actually query a simple xls file but didn't have any immediate luck.

Ended up converting their cucm export to vcard to quickly use the solution via http://vostrom.com/vcardcmxml/

Will look to code our own now the initial requirement has been met at least, buys some time :) Thanks for the input though.
