Good, but so far you've only installed the windows package, which is needed
to invoke MS-Excel to read xls and xlsx files.
You also need to install the io package (which holds the actual spreadsheet
I/O functions) using 

pkg  install  -auto  io-<version>.tar.gz

(where <version> could be 2.2.9?

or even better:

pkg install -forge -auto io

(that will download & install the latest version from the web)

followed by

pkg load auto

(which will load all packages designated to be "auto"loaded - you'd only
need to do this once)
