You can use this simple function:

<xsl:function name="wl:todate" as="xs:dateTime">
   <xsl:param name="days" as="xs:double"/>
   <xsl:value-of select="xs:dateTime('1900-01-01T00:00:00') +

I'm not sure what the value returned by EXCEL actually means; if I run
41640.0 through this function, the result is 2014-01-03T00:00:00, but
this can be adjusted, of course.
