Excel should be able to write a "matrix" in a plain ascii file with
' ' separators. As long as it contains only numbers you can directly
it into octave. If not, you could use perl, which is standard on any
unix/linux system (probably no in your OS), to format the csv output 
in an octave readible format.

Hope that helps.

PS: Why do you want to use octave? I thought excel is so cool, that
anything can
be done inside with "visual??"? ;-)
