OTHER WAYS TO BRING EXCEL DATA INTO ACCESS
In addition to importing, you can use the following techniques to bring data from Excel into Access:

Link to Excel data. Linking does not create a copy of the data in Access, but lets you use Access to view data in an Excel worksheet. For more information about how to link to a worksheet, see the section Link to data in Excel, in this topic.
Cut or copy data from Excel and paste it into an Access table. For more information about how to cut or copy data in a worksheet, see Excel Help.
Import data by writing code. You can write a macro or a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) procedure to import data programmatically. For more information about how to do this, see Import data programmatically.
Export Microsoft Excel data to an Extensible Markup Language (XML) file which can then be imported into Access. For more information about how to import XML data, see the section "Import data and schema from XML" in the Import or link data and objects topic.
