The only way to access an Excel file with the BDE and a TTAble component is
to use the Excel ODBC driver. The following may help.

Create an ODBC DSN that points to the Excel file.

Excel files will not appear in the TTable.TableName property drop-down.
Enter the worksheet file name with no extension followed by a $ in the
TableName property. You can optionally append a cell range. For exmaple:

To read all of the rows in the worksheet when specifying a cell range make
the ending row number larger than the last possible row.

If you really want to work with a table name then you can define a

named region in Excel, then that region will appear in the list of tables
