correct? Thanks. 

Not xlsm but xlsx.

For xls files, you need to set up java environment or to install 32 bit
version MS-Excel.
For java, e.g. on windows, it is required to install the JRE from the Oracle
web site.
To use MS-Excel COM interface (it is only able to be used on windows), 
you need to install and load the windows package before installing the io

>> pkg install -forge windows
>> pkg load windows
>> pkg install -forge io

Note that window package is not supported on octave-4.0.0-rc3 in the current
situation but someone else perhaps will work on it. (Philip mentioned about
this topic on the octave-ML but I do not remember when and where he did it.)
