Transferspreadsheet + recd's w/dup'd keys inserted in new table:'Paste Errors'

I am using Docmd.Transferspreadsheet to append a large Access table with a data from an Excel table. Once duplicate values are recognized in any field that should hold unique values I would like to initiate an event that opens a message box that says something like,"Records that Microsoft Office Access was unable to paste have been inserted into a new table called 'Paste Errors.' and have that action performed. Can anyone help me with this?

Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

Welcome to the forum,

With your code why not just open the paste error table

DoCmd.OpenTable "Paste Errors"
