The Excel file must be in a "List/Table" structure.

Basically:
No blank rows in between rows of data
No Blank columns in between columns of data
Field Names in row 1
No Jagged edges to the data.
No stray text in numeric fields
No hidden columns
No leading spaces in call values

Also try the import into a brand new blank Access 2007 database.

You can also post this Excel file here, and I can try importing it to an Access 2007 DB on my machine.
