According to the Access 2007 help, the syntax for SELECT INTO is:

SELECT field1[, field2[, &]] INTO newtable [IN externaldatabase] FROM source

The SELECT&INTO statement has these parts:

Part--Description
field1, field2--The name of the fields to be copied into the new table.
newtable--The name of the table to be created. It must conform to standard naming conventions. If newtable is the same as the name of an existing table, a trappable error occurs.
externaldatabase--The path to an external database. For a description of the path, see the IN clause.
source--The name of the existing table from which records are selected. This can be single or multiple tables or a query.

And the syntax for the IN clause for an Excel worksheet is:

FROM [Customers$]  IN "c:\documents\xldata.xls" "EXCEL 5.0;"

So, I think your SELECT INTO statement should be:

tmpTbl_Insert = "SELECT * INTO TBL_COCKPIT_KIT_TMP IN ""S:\0005_Production_Backup_Database\GEPICS_EXPORT_FILES\COCKPIT_KIT\COCKPIT_ONE.xls"" ""EXCEL 8.0;"" FROM [COCKPIT$]"

stellyuk,


the "Select into " statement is for creating an Access table in an Access db application

are you trying to export a table to an Excel file?
if so, you will need  something

docmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport,acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9,"tableName","S:\0005_Production_Backup_Database\GEPICS_EXPORT_FILES\COCKPIT_KIT\COCKPIT_ONE.xls"

I'm trying to import an excel spreadsheet into Access... but when I create the temporary table I dont hink access can see it, it does not display in the list of tables and I think that is why it can't find it.

When I open and close Access or refresh it with F5 the temporary table is there with data in it as well... any ideas?

      "Temptable", "S:\0005_Production_Backup_Database\GEPICS_EXPORT_FILES\COCKPIT_KIT\COCKPIT_ONE.xls", True, "Sheet1!"
