I have a .xls file which I open in OO Calc. Is it possible for me to export the data from this file to MYSQL?
In the File -> Export, the options I get are only export to either pdf or XHTML formats.

Any help willl be highly appreciated

A mysql-db is not a single file. It supports more than a dozend different datatypes per field, whereas a spreadsheet has only two types (string and floating point number) and you may mix both types in one column as you like.
You need to double-check the integrity of all sheet-columns. Don't mix numbers and strings, eliminate all errors.
Save your sheet as csv and import into mysql. Mysql has a pretty tool for this.
