Can Excel Connector Create Objects in the Salesforce Database (Schema and All) FROM SCRATCH?

I have some legacy Excel spreadsheets each of which has very large number of columns, and I'd like to migrate this data to Salesforce. If I use the Setup menu, it will be VERY TIME CONSUMING to create the objects with the required number of fields.


Can Excel Connector create these objects from scratch without any prior-existing object schema in the Salesforce database?


Or is there, perhaps, a  way to do this by combining an Excel Connector operation with direct edits to the Meta Data in Eclipse?

It can create new records, all you need to do is match up all existing columns that you want set, then put New in the Index column and select Insert Selected Rows.
