oledb.16.0 provider is not registered on this machine error message

Hi,
I am trying to import data from Excel 2016 into SQL Express Management Studio V 17.3
and coming up with the attached error message. I tried saving to an earlier version but
error saying that version was not suitable. I would like to get to the source of the
problem rather than a workaround solution. Earlier I tried the latest SQL version 18.0
but the import and export options were greyed out for some reason.
Any help much appreciated as I am pulling my hair out and not much of that left :)
Ian
