You can use the 'Construct Points...' tool in the Editor menu to place points along your line at specified intervals or based on m-values then extract values from the SRTM image to points (Spatial Analyst Tools/Extraction/Extract Values to Points). You could build your Excel spreadsheet from the output table.
