I'm guessing your table 'tmpShipping' has a field called 'Store Name', but your spreadsheet does not have a matching header called 'Store Name'. I would start by checking those two things.

actually, the error codes states the reverse.

you don't have field named "Store Name" in your table tblShipping.

Open your table tblShipping in design view and check the names of the fields,

you might have a field for "store Name", but check  the spelling, space or underscore.

if you don't have the field, add it to your table.

hmm looking at your code, you are missing a part

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "tmpShipping", filename, True 'Erroring on this line


it should be

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "tmpShipping", filename, True, "TheNameOfSheetGoeshere"

or if the name of the sheet is "Sheet1"

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "tmpShipping", filename, True, "Sheet1!"

note*- if you have multiple sheets in your excel file you should specify the sheet, but if have only one sheet then no need to.

Try importing the spreadsheet manually, and look at the resulting table to see what the field names and data types are.  It might be best to first import the Excel data into a new table, and then run an append query to add the data to the regular table, converting data types as needed, since sometimes Excel values are not imported as the right data types for Access tables.
