I'm using the code below and it's in a never ending loop. Thoughts

Public Function Import_System_Access_Reports()

Dim strFolder As String
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim qdf As DAO.QueryDef
Dim strFile As String
Dim strTable As String
Dim strExtension As String
Dim lngFileType As Long
Dim strSQL As String
Dim strFullFileName As String
Dim varPieces As Variant

 With Application.FileDialog(4) ' msoFileDialogFolderPicker
     If .Show Then
         strFolder = .SelectedItems(1)
         MsgBox "No folder specified!", vbCritical
         Exit Function
     End If
 End With
 If Right(strFolder, 1) <> "\" Then
     strFolder = strFolder & "\"
 End If
 strFile = Dir(strFolder & "*.xls*")
 Do While strFile <> ""

     lngPos = InStrRev(strFile, ".")
    strTable = "RawData" '<- this could be a constant instead of a variable
Set db = CurrentDb()
' make the UPDATE a parameter query ...
strSQL = "UPDATE [" & strTable & "] SET FileName=[pFileName]" & vbCrLf & _
    "WHERE FileName Is Null OR FileName='';"
Set qdf = db.CreateQueryDef(vbNullString, strSQL)

strFile = Dir(strFolder & "*.xls*")
Do While Len(strFile) > 0
    varPieces = Split(strFile, ".")
    strExtension = varPieces(UBound(varPieces))
    Select Case strExtension
    Case "xls"
        lngFileType = acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9
    Case "xlsx", "xlsm"
        lngFileType = acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12Xml
    Case "xlsb"
        lngFileType = acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12
    End Select
    strFullFileName = strFolder & strFile
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet _
            TransferType:=acImport, _
            SpreadsheetType:=lngFileType, _
            TableName:=strTable, _
            Filename:=strFullFileName, _
            HasFieldNames:=True ' or False if no headers

    ' supply the parameter value for the UPDATE and execute it ...
    qdf.Parameters("pFileName").Value = strFile
    qdf.Execute dbFailOnError
    'Move to the next file
    strFile = Dir
     'Clean up
     Set fld = Nothing
     Set tdf = Nothing
     Set db = Nothing
     Set rstTable = Nothing

End Function
