There is no way to do it directly in Revit out-of-the-box. You can buy a third-party app to do this, there are free apps in the AUGI API forum that will read that excel file, and put it into a Revit Schedule (I use Key Schedules for this) so that you can place it in multiple Revit Sheets.

You can also import it in AutoCAD and then Import-link it to Revit the Excel spreadsheet or using a screen capture program capture the spreadsheet as a JPG and import the image into Revit.

The first method allows you to update the spreadsheet in Excel, then update it in AutoCAD and finally it will update in Revit.
