Excel to matlab

dear friends,
I am writing a project on the deformation of Offshore monopile foundations and have gathered , among others, time(20Hz)-Extension readings which are saved in an excel file in my pc. I wish to import this Excell file into matlab and deduce a frequecy from this Extension- time readings with the help of FFT. I also wish to identify and eleminat unchanged values of Extension (which occure as a result of defects in the measuring equipments). the I have been reading book relating to this topic and working with the Matlab-student version CD but i still find it difficult. I would be grateful if you could help.
