If you have it in the correct format (chr, start, stop) in the Excel file (.xls or .xlsx), you can save it as a tab-delimited text file and just rename it to ".bed".

Hi, you can make a bed file by having the columns in the format

chromsome start stop name

where the columns are tab separated and if you name then you can put that too.

you can find more information on:

Example of bed file:

chr7    117067403   117067666
chr6    117512942   117513865
chr2    131280907   131281440
chr5    131346892   131347779

hope this helps.
