If you wanting to use a SSRS model to report from the Report Builder you can create a view that looks at the EXCEL sheet as a "linked server".

Once the view is created you can create a dsv with SSRS and then you will be able to report off that model.

Then, using the export function or subscription you can generate xls/csv files.
