Can anyone see what is causing the run time error in my code? I realize it may be difficult without having the spreadsheet, but I am confident the naming is consistent between my code and the spreadsheet.  I have tried multiple files and locations, but I keep getting the error. When I hover my arrow over MyRange, it says empty. Thanks!

Function ImportExcelFile()

Dim MyDir As String
Dim MyFile As String
Dim MyYear As String
Dim MyMonth As String
Dim MyDay As String
Dim MyDate As String
Dim FileToGet As String
Dim shtName As String



MyDir = "//AvailableSummaries/"
MyYear = Format(Date, "yyyy")
MyMonth = Format(Date, "mm")
MyDay = Format(Date, "dd")
MyDate = MyYear & " " & MyMonth & "-" & MyDay
MyFile = MyDate & " Contractor Available Stock" & ".xls"
shtName = "'Contractor Available Inventory'!"
MyRange = "A1:D10000"
FileToGet = MyDir & MyFile


DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "tblContractorAvailableInventory", FileToGet, True, shtName & MyRange


End Function

I still have the error.  However, the range is no longer empty.

Could there be any issues with excel version file types?  The Excel file is a Microsoft Excel Worksheet and I am using Access 2010.

Same error.  When I hover over acImport, I see it = 0.

What does this mean?

are sure you are getting the correct excel file ?

FileToGet = MyDir & MyFile

debug.print FileToGet   'Add this lines and verify if the file and path is correct.

if dir(MyDir & MyFile) <> "" then
    msgbox "File Exists"
    else
     msgbox " File Not found"
end if

MyDir = "//AvailableSummaries/"

Double -check this.  

If you are dealing with a network folder, shouldn't the slashes be going in the opposite direction?


MyDir = "\\AvailableSummaries\"
