Upload an Excel Spreadsheet into an Access 2010 table using a button on a form

I have a file "export.xlsx" that is imported on a daily basis to an Access 2010 table "FD Service Desk".  I would like to create a form that has a button on it that once clicked, will upload the spreadsheet into the table.  I can create the form and button, just not sure what coding is necessary to actually upload the file into the table.

spreadsheet is uploaded but a new table is created each time i click the button.  I need the data to be appended to the existing table.

you can do it by first
import the excel to a temporary table

docmd.transferspreadsheet acimport,10, "tmpTable", "C:\Folder\export.xlsx", true, "sheet1!"

then run an append query that appends the records from the tmpTable to "[FD Service Desk]"
something like this

Insert Into [FD Service Desk]
select tmpTable.*
from tmpTable

I was hoping for a solution that only required one step to simplify the process

there is a one step solution, (not simple though)
by reading the excel file and appending to the table using vba.

just stay with the two step process.

private sub cmdImport_click()

'import the excel file
docmd.transferspreadsheet acimport,10, "tmpTable", "C:\Folder\export.xlsx", true, "sheet1!"

'insert the imported records to the final table
currentdb.execute "Insert Into [FD Service Desk] select tmpTable.* from tmpTable "

end sub
