    Import Specified Range Of Excel Into Access Table

    I am trying to use VBA to import an Excel file into access. And I am specifying a range, and specifying that it has headers.

    This is the code that I have
    Dim importFile As String
    importFile = "C:\Test\test.xls"
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel8, "Test", importFile, True, "A5:ZZZ99999999"

    and the A5 - ZZZ99999 is just saying import all that because I have no idea where the data will actually end.

    but I get an error of
    Run-time error '3011':
    The Microsoft access database engine could not find the object 'A5:ZZZ999999'. Make sure the object exists and that you pell its name and the path correctly

    does your excel file actually have zzz columns? Exceltype8 is excel 97. Being over 23 years old I'm pretty sure it did not have zzz columns and I'm absolutely positive it did not have more than 64000 rows. Even a xlsx only has xfd columns. Suggest restate your range to something that is actually possible
