Importing from Excel - only 1 tab

Experts,

I have an excel file with numerous tabs.
The tab I want to import is the first tab named "Deliverables"

I have code to import.
I found that in order to import with this code I can not have >1 tab.

What part of the code do I need to change in order to import the first tab of a workbook that has many tabs?  

fyi:  the import worked fine when I created another workbook with only the first tab being populated and no other tabs existed (not even the default Sheet2, Sheet3)

Private Sub cmdImport_Click()

    Dim strName As String
    Dim xlApp As Object
    Dim xlWB As Object
    Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
    With xlApp
        .Visible = False
        Set xlWB = .Workbooks.Open("J:\Corporate\Treasury\Compliance\Reporting and Key Dates for Compliance\Compliance Covenants - Financing and JVA.xls", , False)
        strName = xlWB.Sheets(1).Name
    End With
    Set xlWB = Nothing
    Set xlApp = Nothing
   DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, , "Import_Access", "J:\Corporate\Treasury\Compliance\Reporting and Key Dates for Compliance\Compliance Covenants - Financing and JVA.xls", True, strName & "!"

End Sub
