On the File menu, click Import. From the Import dialog box, choose the appropriate version of Microsoft Excel that you are importing and click the OK button. Microsoft Excel 7.0 files are not on this list. If you are importing a version 7.0 file, choose the Microsoft Excel 5.0 option.

In Access 7.0, on the File menu, click Get External Data and then click Import. From the import dialog box, choose Microsoft Excel (*.xls) for the Files Of Type option.

Most of it is pretty friendly.

Czher,

This is what I did in one of my designed Access applications.
1. I created a table linked to an excel file.
2. From the linked table, I created an append query (appending data from linked Excel into onother table)
3. Then, I created a button on one of the forms that once clicked, it will run the query.
It worked fine with me. Just thinking you might like the idea and implement the process as well.

Sincerely,

Ed
