Import Routine from Excel into Access

Does anyone have a generic import routine from Excel into Access? I am receiving a file in xls format weekly. What I would like to do is to name the file as file062201.xls (today), file062901.xls which would be the file I receive next week. I am going to save these files into one directory. I am looking for a generic import routine that would grab the data in excel and import into Access. This will replace any existing data in the table (as opposed to appending). Please help.

1. you can link excel tables into access.  given you know the directory and file name then you can code this.

2. having linked the spreadsheet you could either run a query to replace the table data or do it in code.
