With Access 2013 I'm using this code to try to import an Excel file into a table but it isn't working.  Nothing happens.

        DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 10, "tblTempCatalogImport", Me.txtFileName, True


Note:  I have also tried:      
 
        'DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "tblTempCatalogImport", Me.txtFileName, True
       
        'DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12, "tblTempCatalogImport", Me.txtFileName, True

I'm not sure why but this ended up working when it didn't before:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "tblTempCatalogImport", Me.txtFileName, True
