    'toggle visibility for debugging
    xlApp.Visible = False
    
    Set xlWrk = xlApp.Workbooks.Open("C:\ExcelImportFile.xls")
    Set xlSheet = xlWrk.Sheets("Sheet1")

Kelvin and Krishna V,
I changed NOTE to Notex, and added the single quotes around & xlSheet.Cells(i, 2).Value &.

That worked!  But now every time it tries to save it prompt the following message:

Do you want to append message
How can I stop this from popping up?

thank you,

Hi,
 Incase you HAVE to use RESERVED words as column names then the column name can be enclosed between [, ] in your query it should work.

You can try and check if the problem happens to be because of Reserved word.

Thanks,
