code to import data to access 2013 database from excel 2013 file

hi

i have a code that  seems to be excellent and professional (a code that prevent duplicates and check headers etc.) to import data from an excel file (code source  there) but i don't understand how exact the code is working. the function name is "ImportSpreadsheet" and the code is  on  a modle with the name "basImportXLS". i try to call this function on form "form1" with no success. i will be very thankful if someone will help me to use this function. i attached the access database and an excel file that it's came with this code.
TestData.xlsx
ImportXLS.accdb

The "basTest" module includes a method named "TestImport". That shows you exactly how to use it. You would essentially duplicate that code in the Click event of your Command0 button.

Obviously, you'd need to know the full path to the file before you run this line:

   Set xlb = Excel.Application.Workbooks.Open("C:\TestData.xlsx")
 
That said, I really don't see any need to automate an instance of Excel just to import data. Instead, use TransferSpreadsheet to move your data from the Excel sheet into a "staging" table, and then use standard VBA/SQL to check it and move it to your "live" tables.
