No, there's no prototype I know for doing that.

If you'd like to create one then look closely at the Scripting in EON documentation, there's something about getting data from a database and I'm pretty sure Excel can be a database. If not then using an ActiveX Control would be another way to get the data.

As far as putting data into a keyframe node, check the keyframe documentation but most helpful maybe to look at the internal script of the RecordPath prototype.
