Open a recordset from excel with VB6

I need to get data from Excel to a recordset.
I found this code on the Internet, but I don't know what to do from here... How do I go from here to a recordset?  Is there a better way to do this?

oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls)};" & _
           "DriverId=790;" & _
           "Dbq=c:\somepath\mySpreadsheet.xls;" & _

I plan to take this data and validate it and base on the validation, this data from excel will go into an access database if it passes the validation, while the errors will go into an error spreadsheet in Excel.  Although I worte the validation loop, I cannot use it because I don't know how many rows the spreadsheet has from where I get the data, each spreadsheet has a differnet number of rows.  I need to use a for loop for i=2 to rows.columns.count (this doesn't work either) so I thought I would use for i = 2 to recordset.EOF.  But I don't know how to get the recordset.  Can you please help me!!!
