Using Query Excel Services, I do not believe so. I have done it in a more roundabout fashion by:
- Saving the file as a CSV
- Use Web request action to get the file and store content as multiline text variable
- Use Regular Expression action to split the text into a collection of rows (splitting on pattern
- Use a For Each action to loop through the rows and
- Use a regular expression action to split on the comma to create a collection of row contents (each item in collection being a column)
- Use collection action "Pop" to pop the last column value to a variable to be used to create a list item
- Use Create Item action to use the variables you created by the pop action.
