I'm trying to use the following code, which is part of some FileDialog code I got on the net to import an Excel file with a .xlsm extension into Access and it's not working.   When I navigate through windows explorer as a result of running the FileDialog code, I'm not seeing the file I want to select. I'm guessing because it has a .xlsm extension.

Also, if I can get the file to import, I'd like to only include columns C, D and E as well as start on row 16 if possible (skip over the first 15 rows).

tblFileName = strFilePath
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "tblTest", tblFileName, True
