In Scribus, how to fill text in TextFrame automatically?

I am new to Scribus and amazed by looking at its power. Hmmm.. I have been missing a lot. I have installed Scribus on Windows OS.
I am trying to create a set of cards to be used in a game with different text. The real project is much more complex but I will keep it simple to understand the things.
Scenario: I have a simple Scribus document with just one TextFrame in it. Its ID is Text1. This is our Template document.
I have 20 data rows, in Excel, which I need to, enter in Template. I can do it by creating 20 copies of template and enter the text manually in each copy. But this is really painful and impractical. I may need to change something or add more rows or what not.
Question: How can I automate the process of ----
1. Make a copy of Template document.
2. Entering the data from Excel to Text1 in that copy document?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
