Its been a while & i am rusty - need a button to import automatically

P: 56
I am trying to create a fool proof "import" button that will import data from an excel file that will be located on a shared drive. This file can be updated by users - but I don't want them to have to manually import the data to the database. I also do not want to link the table - since it will likely be a table that is often deleted and replaced.

So i need VB code that will enable a button to import the table - and overwrite the one in the data base.

I have a saved import - so if we can just point to that - that woudl be great. I plan to have numerous saved imports and rather than have my users go thru this list - I want to give certain groups access to certain imports.

table name is BLDG_INV
current location is d:\Docume~1\solivas\Desktop\DATABA~1\BLDG_INV.XLS

can someone please work some magic?
