VBA error when importing Excel 2010 file

I am receiving Run-time error '3170': Could not find installable ISAM when attempting to import an Excel 2010 file (.xlsx) into an Access 2010 database using this code:

Private Sub ImportSurveyP_Click()
If IsNull(Me.txtFileName) Or Len(Me.txtFileName & "") = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Please select the Excel file"
    Me.ImportSurveyP.SetFocus
    Exit Sub
End If

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel14, "data_Flow", Me.txtFileName, True

End Sub

Open in new window


The error is with the TransferSpreadsheet line and I think it relates to the acSpreadsheetType.

I also tried acSpreadsheetType21Xml (as suggested elsewhere) in addition to acSpreadsheetType14 and this gives the same error.

Suggestions for what else I can try?
