I don't think there's an easy way to do this since the copy/paste behavior is not consistent across platforms and browsers. The better option is to let them upload what they want and then parse it and insert what you want.

Each user is using a big file with different information. The data i want to capture in a form is about 60 rows and it is in a specific name excel sheet. i don't have any other choices but doing it this way..
The other option for me is to have them using webforms instead of excel workbook...but this is a long term solution and takes a while to be build..
i need simply to take this data and insert it into an Oracle table.
What do you suggest please ?

I'd either set up a file upload or a text area input where they can paste it and submit it, and then add logic to perform the various parsing logic for the different formats on the server.
