Problem when the Excel file name is changing or unknown

I'm looking over the Excel examples and see a problem: what if I don't know the exact name of the Excel file I'm trying to open? All of the examples need a full name either in the Dbq or the Data Source properties. In my case the file is different every day.

Any ideas if this is possible?

No I cant see how this would be possible. You must know the name of the file you are trying to open. Sorry.
Let me know if you find out a work around.

Maybe you could try to enumerate the files in the folder if you know the foldername and then check the file date or something. Then parse that filename into the connection string.
Good luck!
