How can I mass load cards, like from an Excel spreadsheet?

I have my Product Backlog in an Excel spreadsheet.  I would like to load the ready items into Trello as cards in the Product Backlog list.

My co-worker showed me how to copy / paste a list of Excel cells into multiple cards -- very handy!  But I also want to include another column of data which I want to put into the description on the back of the card.  I ended up doing this manually, by copy/paste.

Is there a faster way to to this?

Hey there,

I'm not sure if there's a way to *ONLY* update an existing card's description with Zapier+Google Docs+Trello, however they do have a Zap that you can create new cards with descriptions if you want to check that out.. 

Thanks for the suggestion!  We're on Office 365, so I'll have to keep looking.  One idea I'm toying with is a Mail Merge from Excel + Word -> thru Outlook -> Trello's magic email addresses for creating cards.
