How to automatically import sheets from excel into access database

Dear all,

I've been manually importing data from an excel workbook into an access database using External data -> Import.  There are over 20 sheets of data is there a way to automatically set up an import procedure that will iterate through the sheets using all the import wizard default options?

Thanks

Hello,

I've tried the example from the first link.  I'm having troubles with the table name argument I would like this to be the same as the excel sheet name.  The current error "action or method requires a table name argument".

Sub ImportAllSheets()
Dim objXL As Object
Dim sTable, xlPath As String, i As Integer

xlPath = "C:\Export\TestBook1.xlsx"

Set objXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    objXL.Workbooks.Open xlPath, , True
    With objXL
        For i = 1 To .Worksheets.Count
            DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, sheet1, xlPath, True
        Next
    End With
    objXL.Quit
    Set objXL = Nothing

End Sub

Open in new window


Thanks

Sub ImportAllSheets()
Dim objXL As Object
Dim sTable, xlPath As String, i As Integer

xlPath = "C:\Export\TestBook1.xlsx"

Set objXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    objXL.Workbooks.Open xlPath, , True
    With objXL
        For i = 1 To .Worksheets.Count
            DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, .worksheets(i).name, xlPath, True, .Worksheets(i).Name & "!"
        Next
    End With
    objXL.Quit
