What I need:

I have a filedialog making a single file selection.
Once i do that I need the file to store the Excel file in a sql server field.

Is there a way to do this ?

Confused...

Save the Excel "Data" to SQL, ...or store the Excel File as "Binary" data to SQL

Whats the ultimate need for this?
It might be easier to just store the Path to the Excel file.

In any event, you can use the "Steam" object in the newer versions of the ADO library for this:

It may not be "easy", as you hope...
Because any number of things may vary with your setup.
There may be conflicts/issues with:
Your Access version
Your Excel file format
Your version of SQL server
Your ADO library version

Lets see what others may post...
