Also, look at OPENROWSET, which can directly access an Excel worksheet with SQL statements, as if it were a table. No need for the step exporting to XML, no need to put the document in a text variable.

Excel is a source for DTS. No need for openrowset either. Just edit the worksheet to make (only) row A the column headers, point to the file after choosing the Excel source in DTS, and DTS creates one table per worksheet.
