The best way will depend on any integrity link from the table to update to the rest of your  database
Assuming we cannot temporarily delete that table or it's content, we have those solution:

BEST Solution (If you control the export process)
- Make the export/import from a temporary table copy you can delete safely.
step 1 Delete existing temporary table if it exists
step 2 Run the importXML with the parameter acStructureAndData.
step 3 Execute a simple update query.

If the table exist is the same name, cannot be deleted and the record to update also cannot be deleted beforehand:

importXML with acAppendData will fail (duplicate primary key)
importXML with acStructureAndData willproduce a new unknown to your code tablename.
you can work arround that in this way:

step 1 delete the importErrors (or count rows)
step 2 Make a list of existing table name.
step 3 Run the importXML with acStructureAndData
step 4 Compare current table name with earlier list.
step 5 Check the importErrors table.
step 6 Create an update query using the found name.
step 7 Run the update query
step 8 Delete the imported table.
step 9 Report any errors to the user.
