HI,  is it possible to import excel files directly into HDFS ?  If it is, how would I create a job to import multiple excel files from a folder?

Many thanks

Yes. You can import excel files directly into HDFS. Use upload button available in HDFS explorer to import the excel files. 
How would I create a job to import multiple excel files from a folder? 
You can import the excel files in following ways. 
Upload files manually: 
  • Import the files by using Upload button available in HDFS tab whenever you need to upload.
Using Bat File: 
Make the following changes in Upload.bat file and run it. 

  1. path\to\local\folder à Local path of the excel folder.
  2. /path/to/target/HDFS/location à HDFS location for the destination folder
