There are a number of choices:

- select range in Excel, press ctrl-c and read in the data from the
clipboard using read.table("clipboard",header=T)

- write out the data from Excel into a .csv file and use

- use Baird's dataload utility (search Google) and convert the
.xls file to .rda format and then use the R load command.
You can alternately use dataload to convert the xls file
to csv or text and then proceed as above.

- use the RODBC package to directly read the .xls file.

- use the RDCOM package.  Its not in CRAN so search for it.  This
also directly reads the .xls file.

No banners. No pop-ups. No kidding.
