Link to Excel at link table won't 'movenext'

Access 2003 - I linked to an Excel 2003 spreadsheet as a 'table link'.  In code, I do this:
dim db as dao.database
dim src as dao.recordset
set db = codedb
set src = db.openrecordset("myexceltable",dbopensnapshot)
if not src.eof and not src.bof then
    src.movefirst
    do while not src.eof
          '------- code
         src.movenext
    loop
end if

The problem is, although 300+ records appear in the linked table, only 1 record is accessed by this openrecordset??
src.recordcount = 1

What's up with this?
Thanks

if not src.eof then
src.movelast

msgbox src.recordcount
    src.movefirst

          '------- code
         src.movenext
    loop
end if

Thanks... That's what I needed to get through this recordset.  Without the MoveFirst AND MoveLast at the beginning of the code, when I got to the src.movenext the app errored with an 'overflow' message (??).  By adding the src.movelast, the code now loops thru the entire recordset.
