If you've got installer.app on your iphone you can view excel files by installing lighttpd.
Once installed, just edit the /usr/local/etc/lighttpd.conf file on the iphone
add this to the beginning of the file:
dir-listing.activate = "enable"
remove the # from the line with this in it:
server.bind = "127.0.0.1"
now all you need to do is sftp files over to the Sites folder in the iphone and you can view them by navigating to http://127.0.0.1 on the iphone to list the files and click on the one you want to view.
this works for all the files safari can show, including excel and pdf's.
