You can import data into Jira using CSV as explained here http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA044/Importing+Data+From+CSV
But remember this is an admin funtionality and not for regular users. So doing this on a continuous basis is not a practical solution.
If you are looking at regular sync between Excel and Jira you need to explore other options like writing a SOAP based program to do the same.
You could try to use the Jira Command Line Interface also.
Your comment about "...and upload them with results ..." makes me wonder if you really/actually even need to upload the Test Cases. Why not use the excel sheet as the basis of tracking your regression testing, and in event of defects being found create bug report issues on the fly using JIRA - and importantly: including the screenshots and details, assign to the right person, etc ... all in realtime (rather than having to wait for some upload).
However, if the purpose is to also be able to portray the status/progress of planned regression testing then of course import them as issues using the mechanism already described by others above.
thanx buddy dat was an useful stuff u xplained.......sry fr making u wonder bt wt i meant was about QC in dat v generally upload the test cases by using excel add-in along with d screenshots .........i was jz looking the same in jira anyways thanx for ur time bro
