I think you need to provide the calendar details as Outlook requires and then export these to a CSV file. Outlook can import from WCS (iCalendar or vCalendar) or CSV, but not XLS directly.

Export from an existing Outlook calendar to csv.  Then open it in Excel, along with your file.  Change your file to match the exported csv's column header spellings and positions exactly, then save your file as a csv.  Then Outlook will be happy to accept your format.
If you want it to go to your "default" Outlook calendar, then there is some good vba code out there to do what you need - but, if you need it to go into a calendar other than your default calendar, then I am not sure if you can do that with vba.
