Import Excel 2007 (.xlsx) into SQL 2000 using OpenRowSet

How do I go about importing Excel 2007 (.xslx) data into SQL 2000?
We are able to import data from Excel 2003 into SQL 2000 using the following:

SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
'Excel 8.0;Database=c:\Excel2003.xls', 'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')

But this does not work when the source file is Excel 2007.
Do I need to install a driver? I have tried installing AccessDatabaseEngine.exe from Microsoft and updating the OPENROWSET arguements accordingly, but to no avail.

What an error did you get?
can you import the Excel with DTS?
 
check:
SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0',...

I'm not sure if this is of any relevance....I do not have Office 2007 installed on the machine that I am trying to run the query on.
Surely this doesn't matter as it is using ODBC to access the data in the spreadsheet?

you need to install this package:

Hmmm, I tried installing AccessDatabaseEngine.exe yesterday and it didn't work.
So I tried again, this time I  closed down all apps, removed AccessDatabaseEngine.exe and then re-installed and hey presto - it works.
