Importing data from spreadsheets into UFORE shell database

This suggestion was received from Eunice A. in Pennsylvania

It would be helpful if there was a way to import data collected manually which is properly formatted in Excel spreadsheets into the UFORE shell input database. We have multiple people who have manually collected UFORE data in several parks. Each field team has their data in Excel which makes it easy to transfer and combine files. However, all the data will still have to be manually entered in the UFORE shell.

A mechanism to automate data checking and importing in cases like this would be helpful for those not using PDAs.
