I am using the following code:

<cfquery datasource="wrightLive" name="getStaff">
SELECT FirstName, LastName, StaffID FROM staff
order by FirstName
</cfquery>

<cfoutput query="getStaff">
       <cfquery datasource="staffstuff">
       INSERT INTO "sheet1$" (
            FirstName,
            LastName,
            StaffID
            )
            VALUES (
            '#getStaff.FirstName#',
            '#getStaff.LastName#',
            #getStaff.StaffID#
            )
       </cfquery>
 </cfoutput>

When I try to run it, I get an error that says, "Operation must use an updateable query".  I have checked that I have permission to write to the Excel file, but beyond that I don't know what else to check!  Help...
