You can import your worksheet to a temporary "staging" table (just a table in your Access db that won't be used for anything else). Once you've imported, you can then use standard SQL to determine if you have duplicate data, which is much simpler than do a row-by-row comparison.

You can use TransferSpreadsheet to import you Excel workbook:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "StagingTableName", "Path to your spreadsheet", True

See this for more info on TransferSpreadsheet:

After getting the data into that table, you can then determine which rows need to be moved over to your "live" tables. I'm not sure how you're determining that, but for example if your "staging" table has a column named "CustomerNumber", and you want to be sure that you don't add any records with a pre-existing CustomerNumber, you could do this:

CurrentDB.Execute "INSERT INTO YourLiveTable(Col1, Col2, Col3) SELECT Col1, Col2, Col3 FROM YourStagingTable LEFT OUTER JOIN YourLiveTable ON YourStagingTable.CustomerNumber=YourLiveTable.CustomerNumber WHERE YourLiveTable.CustomerNumber IS NOT NULL"

This would only insert those records where the JOIN expression above does not find a "match" in YourLiveTable.

Of course, your validation may be more involved than that, but you can add multiple fields to the JOIN expression, or multiple criteria to the WHERE clause, etc.

Note you may also be able to simply Link the Excel workbook instead of Importing it. If that's the case, you just link it and do NOT import it to the staging table.

Adding a unique index to your table will prevent duplicates.  You should trap for the duplicate key error(s) and keep on adding new records.
Why not get rid of the duplicate rows before import.  Make a copy of the worksheet.  Use Data, Remove Duplicates..
