With openrowset you can choose your sheet, but that must be prepared to have all columns of right type already.
insert into OPENROWSET(
        'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 
        'Excel 8.0;Database=d:\export\prebaredFile.xls;;HDR=YES', 
        'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')
select * from yourtab1

Open in new window

I would say SSIS is your best bet. You can make create multiple data flows all going to different sheets in one Excel workbook.  Post another question asking that specifically so we can help.
