Hi. You can configure the client to automatically add the svn:needs-
lock property to files with a certain extension (like .xls). The
feautre is called auto-props (automatic properties) and is described
in further detail in the book at http://svnbook.org as is locking.
The file you want to edit is ~/.subversion/config (on Unix-like
machines, anyway; on Windows the file is elsewhere).

Since this is a client-side setting, it is up to each user to
configure their system this way. To ensure that they do, you can
write a pre-commit hook which would reject the commit of any .xls
file which did not have the svn:needs-lock property.
