Append values to Access table from excel with ID autogenerated

I have a access database with some tables which get updated daily with some values. I need the tables to have a ID field which is autogenerated when the other values of the table are imported from excel. I want to automate all by keeping a button and writing a VBA code. Right now I have a form which imports the value into the table, but it just imports the exact value which I have . I also need a extra column of ID that has to be auto generated when I import. Please help me.

Excel Sheet Sample:

ProductName | ProductValue

ABC | 76

SDF | 87


ID|ProductName| Product Value



Excel sheet updates each date with new value and it has to be put to the access db with ID automatically incremented.
