What string have you assigned to your 'sourcefile' variable?

Please post all of your code.

Thanks

And also, if you are importing just xlsb files then they will only import into application.version >= 12.0

This might also be your problem.

Just to be clear, you say that you are having problems with a particular file extension, but yet you don't want to post details of how this is being handled in your sourcefile variable??

Dim szConnect As String: Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection:

   szConnect = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
                        "Data Source=" & SourceFile & ";" & _
                        "Extended Properties=""Excel 12.0;HDR=Yes"";"


  szConnect = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=C:\Users\TOYS\Desktop\ALL_TEST\2014\Jul_2014\7_1_2014\Book1.xlsb;Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;

cnn.Open szConnect,,,,,,It fails right here

this should be more than enough  there is nothing more

Try changing extended properties 12.0 instead of 8.0
