Automate Addition of Bad Actor IP addresses

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions or ideas for adding bad actor IP addresses to an address group? I receive a list almost every month in a xls format and would like to just have a time-saving way of getting them in the group.

If you'd be willing to post an example XLS here I would be happy to modify an Excel spreadsheet I have for a similar purpose to match it and post it back.  If not, I'll just summarize that concatenating the pieces of code with carriage returns, or CHAR(10), is the key.  This allows you to create a ton of address objects with a lot less typing, and then once they're in, they're easy enough to add to a group in the GUI assuming you have them named uniformly (I use BadGuys001, etc).
