i also use marcEdit. Enter a sample record into koha and export it out as a marc record, use marcedit "marcbreaker" to break this marc file so you could see the tags and the sub fields used by koha. then export your data out of excel to csv.

you then use marcEdit csv to marc converter to convert it to .mrk after you have correctly mapped your csv fields to the appropriate tag and subfield.

Then to marc which you then import into koha. 

i use the web interface to import into koha

I hope this helps
