Excel files will not appear in the TTable.TableName property
drop-down so to work around this you have to enter the worksheet file name with no extension followed by a $ in the TableName property.
You can also add a cell range. example MyBook$A2:F1000
To read all of the rows in the worksheet when specifying a cell range make the ending row number larger than the last possible row.
