Hi,
I am trying to import an xlsx file into access but seem to be having some difficulty.
The code i am using is:
  ' Import into Access:
  DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, _
   acSpreadsheetTypeExcel97, strcTableName, _
   strFullPath, True

I think the error is with "acSpreadsheetTypeExcel97" but i am not sure.
Any Ideas?

Kind Regards,
Andrew

change this

 DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, _
   acSpreadsheetTypeExcel97, strcTableName, _
   strFullPath, True


with


 DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, _
   10, strcTableName, _
   strFullPath, True

or

 DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, _
   acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12xlm, strcTableName, _

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, _
   10, strcTableName, _
   strFullPath, True

This gives me the following error: External table is not in the expected format.

 DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, _
   acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12xlm, strcTableName, _
   strFullPath, True

This gives me the following error: Could not find installable ISAM.
