Hi all I get this error in my Access 2003 form. When I click the debug button it highlights the code listed below

The table does exist and my Excel version is 2003.
Any ideas?
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "tmpTableA", Me.txtFileName, True, "A:A"

I guess the error is saying it doesn't know what me.txtfilename is.

Is this code being executed from within a Form?  If you do Debug>>Compile ... are there any errors?

peter57r: me.txtfilename stores the path and file when the end user selects the file

DatabaseMX: I do not get any errors when compiling

Actually, peter57r I mispelled the field name in the code.

That was it, it should be me.textfilename

Thanks!
