we are creating a CF applicaiton to load an excel expense report into an access db using the CFX_EXCEL tag we bought from /www.masrizal.com.  In the Excel spreadsheet, the first xnumber of columns and rows are reserved for details about the employee, employee name, id #, etc.  The next xnumber of columns and rows are for specifcs on the expense - date, incurred, cost center #, meals amount, auto amount, airfare amount, etc.  I need to submit the employee information in one table and the expense information into a seperate table in an Access db.  The CFX_Excel tag seems either parse all of the data into one large output or I can seperate the data as I have done with modifying the values to be specific for one section, but then I am only returning one section of the sheet and not he other.  I am a novice with CF but any help is appreciated.
<cfx_excel action="read" 
										File="#prodThumbDir#/#prodThumbFile#"
										Sheet= "1"
										Result="qryResult"
										Formula="process"
										StartRow="5"
										EndRow="17"
										StartCol="A"
										EndCol="0"
										HeaderRow="4"
										ProcessMerged="True"
										DecimalDigit="2">

I assume what you get from that cfx_excel is a table liek from a cfquery.
Now you can use that one result table to do the next cfqueries with dbtype set to query.
Like this:
<cfx_excel action="read" 
 File="#prodThumbDir#/#prodThumbFile#"
 Sheet= "1"
 Result="qryResult"
 Formula="process"
 StartRow="5"
 EndRow="17"
 StartCol="A"
 EndCol="0"
 HeaderRow="4"
 ProcessMerged="True"
 DecimalDigit="2">
 
<cfquery name="tblEmployee" dbtype="query" >
  SELECT col1, col2, col3 from qryResult
</cfquery>
 
<cfquery name="tblExpense" dbtype="query" >
  SELECT col4, col5, col6 from qryResult
</cfquery>
