yes it can be done using vba,
using
docmd.transferspreadsheet acimport,8, "tableX", "c:\foldername\yourexcel.xls",true,"sheet1!"


now give more specific information on how you like the information from the excel file to look like in   access table?


this vba commands will import the content of the Excel to 3 tables, table1,table2,table3


DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "table1", CurrentProject.Path & "\tablesforAccess.xls", True, "sheet1!"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "table2", CurrentProject.Path & "\tablesforAccess.xls", True, "sheet2!"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "table3", CurrentProject.Path & "\tablesforAccess.xls", True, "sheet3!"


if you want combine the three tables to one, run a make table query like this

Select A.*  Into FinalTable
 from
(
SELECT table1.F1, table1.[1], table1.[2], table1.[3], table1.[4], table1.[5]
FROM table1
Union All
SELECT table2.F1, table2.[6], table2.[7], table2.[8], table2.[9], table2.[10]
FROM table2
Union All
SELECT table3.F1, table3.[11], table3.[12], table3.[13], table3.[14], table3.[15]
FROM table3
) as A

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "table1", "c:\1\tablesforAccess.xls", True, "sheet1!"

where did you place the code?

try placing the code in the click event of a command button.

private sub command0_click()

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "table1", "c:\1\tablesforAccess.xls", True, "sheet1!"


end sub
