I haven't tried either of these, but there are two Excel modules on CPAN.
Spreadsheet::ParseExcel claims to extract the data from Excel docs.
"XML::Excel provides functions to easily transform Excel documents into XML."
But XML::Excel uses Spreadsheet::ParseExcel.
I'm curious. What kind of content are you searching for in your spreadsheets?
