Its a little while since I did this, but try:
- make sure each column has a unique field name
- name the range of records in Excel with a useful range name (slect range / insert / name / define / ok)
- Save & close the workbook
- In Access A.mdb, File / Get External Data / Create Link (??)

This last step should create a link from your Access database to the Excel workbook, which you can then refer to as a table (it should show in the Table objects listing)
-run a query to identify the modified records (use an append query to add them to the existing table)
Something like that.

Also check Access Help re external links to Excel.
