Assuming you are looking for the license key that was used when excel (office) was installed you can retrieve it using the following program.

This will also show you other licenses you have installed for other software.

I think what the OP is asking is "is the licence key of Excel stored in the document"? I suspect he/she is trying to track down the origin of the document.

kianhow,

No. Excel files do not carry license key information at all.

If you are in a domain environment, and if all Excels are setup properly, maybe you can use the File Author to track down who have created the file. That's pretty much the only way you can track back who have created the file.
