I have some XML files which I need the XSD and XSL for EXCEL maps. I usually use Access to create them from the XML.

Any ideas on a quicker method?

you can use
www.oxygenxml.com
for generating a schema from a collection of XML files

XSLT usually is custom development
(I assume you need to flatten the XML structure a bit for getting an excel table format)

If you are working on the XSLT anyway, and you don't need a databinding, but just the XML import in Excel, you could use the XSLT to transform into a HTML table and import that... I very often take that approach

inside Oxygen it is Trang (open source) that takes care of the functionality
http://www.thaiopensource.com/relaxng/trang.html
Oxygen only serves as the graphical configuration for schema generation

well, you could download an evaluation for a month. That is free
This way you could check wether the approach helps you in a friendly environment.
If you like the Oxygen approach, forget about Oxygen but remeber the configuration settings
and use Trang for free, directly from the command line
