I can tell you that our MBS Plugin has functions to read/write excel documents. Maybe that helps you.
I've since found that data can be simply imported by mapping the fields. I'm now more concerned with how do users view and access the templates and data via the web. Do they need a client application or can the templates and data be viewed on the Web too in a nice visual way?
Yes, you can publish data to the web. There are two (basic) methods for doing so. One is called Instant Web Publishing, and the other is called Custom Web Publishing. Either will work with Server Advanced.

If users have an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) they can get the FM Go app for free and access the database just as you do with your FM Pro client.
If you've got Droid users, you'll need to provide web access. Instant Web Publishing is the simplest way. If you want just reporting, that should be fine. If you want users to enter information though, you'll probably have to hack the template layouts and scripts some to get them to work properly.
