If your data is stored in Microsoft Excel, you will need to export it as a Tabbed Separated Value file—known as a TSV file.

With all the various Microsoft Excel releases, the steps to convert a worksheet to a TSV file vary between versions and operating systems.

Also, don’t forget that you may need to enable the “Tab delimited file exported from Excel or Numbers” checkbox within the Templater Preferences dialog to work with TSV data exported or saved from Microsoft Excel.
