To upload files to splunk, pull up your splunk instance and navigate to: Manager * Data Inputs * Files and Directories * Click on New and select upload local file.

If these really are Excel (binary format) files, and not csv or some other text based format you will need to convert them into some plain text before feeding them into Splunk using this technique.
