export from excel as a flat file2. upload (ftp or whatever method) into a dataset on MVS3. create a master file describing the data4. use a DYNAM ALLOC to point to the new dataset5. read the file and hold FORMAT FOCUS. FOCUS does a lot of things but it doesn't have that much magic. Nor do I believe there are many tools that can load directly from Excel into an MVS dataset. The good news - there IS a solution - just not as easy as you had hoped.
