I have a run-time error when I try to import an excel file into ms access table.
I want excel and ms access in the same folder no matter where the location is.

Sub ImportExcelToAccess()

      Dim xlsht As Excel.Worksheet
      Dim xlWrkBk As Excel.Workbook
      Dim myRec As DAO.Recordset
      Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
      Dim xlWrksht As Excel.Worksheet
      Dim i As Long
      Dim sPathAndFile As String
      Dim sPath As String
      Dim sFile As String

    Set myRec = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblImport_Main")
    Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    sFile = "Import_Main.xlsx"
    sPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "\" & sFile
    
    sPathAndFile = sPath & sFile
    Set xlWrkBk = Workbooks.Open(sPathAndFile)
    
    Set xlWrksht = xlWrkBk.Sheets(1)
       
     For i = 2 To 100
      
        myRec.AddNew
        On Error Resume Next
        myRec.Fields(0) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "A")
        myRec.Fields(1) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "B")
        myRec.Fields(2) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "C")
        myRec.Fields(3) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "D")
        myRec.Fields(4) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "E")
        myRec.Fields(5) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "F")
        myRec.Fields(6) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "G")
        myRec.Fields(7) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "H")
        myRec.Fields(8) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "I")
        myRec.Fields(9) = xlWrksht.Cells(i, "J")
        myRec.Update

    Next
    Set myRec = Nothing
    Set xlApp = Nothing
       
   Exit Sub
            
End Sub

change this

sPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "\" & sFile

to

sPath = currentproject.Path & "\" & sFile

@Rey Obrero:

I have a run-time error '1004': Sorry, we couldn't find the file. Is it possible it was moved, renamed or deleted?

It stops right here: >>>Set xlWrkBk = Workbooks.Open(sPathAndFile)

Thank you for your help.
