There is another way to do this; query the excel sheet as you would any other data source. You need a driver (like with any other database) and you can query it using standard sql. Then just iterate through your dataset and create insert statements for your destination database.

This covers the idea, im sure there are plenty of VB.NET examples around as well....

Don't forget you have to reference the Excel object library before you can use those objects.

References/add reference, choose the COM tab, and locate the microsoft Excel X.X object library
