connecting rods between imported data points

Hello all

I am a student working on a project and I was wondering if anyone here can help me. I am familiar with the basic graphics features of solidworks, but I have no experience with using the macro feature.

What I am trying to do is to import a series of data points containing xyz coordinates from excel. I then need to connect the points with rods by  creating a 3D line sketch and then create a circular profile sweep. The goal is to create tetrahedrons using the imported points.

I am currently only dealing with perhaps a dozen of points but I will need the program to connect hundreds of points in the future.

I really know nothing about writing a macro program so I am kind of lost. I would appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Thank you
