I am trying to design a database that import in a range of cells/rows from an Excel worksheet to then do some processing on this data.

How can I just grab a range of cells/rows for my database to then 'clean up' that data?

For instance, I need A9 to BB49.

This question is simply for grabbing that data.....

My apologies, I thought I had only chosen Access at topic area.

Not interested in doing it within my Excel worksheet, just the access database.

Select the range in Excel
Then copy it.
Then open Access and paste into the Database window or Navigation Pane.

In order to "really" do this you have to open an instance of Excel, in Access.
Then do pretty much the same thing as ged325 posted (Only from Access)

I am sure capricorn1 will be able to help you with the exact code.

Do you want the data linked or just to grab it once?  If you're doing it on one range or Excel sheet to one Access table, you can simply use External Data - Excel - and then link or import depending on which you need.  From there, you select the worksheet or range, whether or not the first row contains headings, and add a primary key if necessary.
