I was using the following code to read the data from an excel(2000) sheet to SQL (2000) database and then have SQL Query to insert the data in to a table.

Now I am using Excel 2007 and SQL 2005, but the above code is not working and I am getting the message which I have set. Could you please help me out what changes to be made for my <cfquery>Tag?

Datasource has been set up and I am using CF 7.0 now.

		<CfQuery name= "MyXLQry" datasource="myXL">
			Select * from [FirstTab$] 
			IN '#thisDirectory#\#newName#' 'EXCEL 5.0;'
		 <cfcatch type="Database">
	   <cfset message="This is not the correct Excel file as the FirstTab is not present.">
	   <cflocation url="dsp_message.cfm?message=#message#" addtoken="No">
