One possibility is to use the Data Export/Import function. Look for the chapter about this in the Administration guide.
Another possiblity is the Migration tool that comes with the Enterprise PDM installation. It was really written to import files from different PDM systems (AMW, Eureka and PDoc) but can be used if you take the information from your Excel file and make it so that it is in the format that this tool uses. There is a guide in the folder with this tool.

Thx for the answers,
the migration tool looks like the one i can use ....but:
if i open the migrate.exe and select next the tool gives the information : <No file vaults found.>
iam logged in the local view as admin. i found the archiv-server when i use the tool for an manuell selection of a local view but not with the migration tool ...any idea for that problem ?
Please ask your VAR to invesitgate the usage of the XML Import tool.
We have a tool that can convert an excel file to the xml format that the EPDM XML Import tool can use. I would be happy to discuss this with you in more detail.
