You have to get a XML file from the Excel file, using a simple text software (the Save As command from Excel is not good as the generated XML file does not fit to the standards). Once you have the XML file, you can get the data in a QuarkXPress layout using Placeholders.
In your Quark instalation folder there is another folder named Documents. Here you can find a pdf file named "XML Import Guide". Just read it to learn more about this.
