Excel Import to Access

Dear Experts

This is a really weird one ...  I am trying to import an excel spreadsheet into Access using the following code:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, , "SMS Import", "C:\Users\xxxx\Desktop\SMS Import.xlsx"

Open in new window


I keep getting an error saying "Field F1 doesn't exist in destination table 'SMS Import'" - so to make sure I wasn't missing anything I exported the data that already existed in the table to excel and then tried to reimport it - I still got the same error!

Any ideas - I have tried adding a reference to Microsoft Excel 14.0 Object library as well as Microsoft Office 14.0 Object library - no difference though

Hi,

pls try because of no field names
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, , "SMS Import", "C:\Users\xxxx\Desktop\SMS Import.xlsx", False

Open in new window

perfect - thank you, I used true rather than false at the end as the spread sheet had headers & that did the trick
