Does Splunk support excel imports. We data in spreadsheets and want to be able to import as excel. I know that CSV imports works but wanted to check if excel imported is a supported future feature of splunk.

Splunk can import any text-based format. Excel file formats such as xls and xlsx is not text-based and as such cannot be read directly by Splunk.

the xlsx file format is a zipped tree of xml files. Unzip and look at the xl/sheet1.xml file.
