Your out of luck MVS doesn't support the excel engine. I am not even sure
how you would get a excel file properly loaded on a MVS system without
transforming it first into something else.
My best solution off teh top of my balding head would be to first take your
excel data and get it into a comma delimited file and then upload that
either through PC SAS or FTP, butthen if you have PC SAS just do the
conversion with that and then proc upload or ftp it up to the Big Iron.
