Default Adding the records into Field F1 while importing

I designed a program that imports an excel file with 30 spreadsheets into an existing ACC2000 table(Test1) at a time. I also need to take each spreadsheet names and added into the field F1. The spreadsheet are named like 3-3-03, 3-4-03, 3-5-03, and so on. they are DATE type in F1. The field F1 is first column in each of spreadsheet of the excile file. Some of cells are blank in the first column. (The spreadsheets are multiple headings, I set up range as A7:T110, but it's not case here.)

My program works for importing all spreadsheets at a time so far, but not adding spreadsheet name in the field F1. I wrote some code within the loop of spreadsheet importing that is supposed to add the names after importing a spreadsheet in to the table Test1 and before moving to next spreadsheet.

My code is the followings, please give me some ideas:

Private Sub Import_xls_Click()
Dim strSQL As String
Dim stDocName As String
Dim xlWorkbook As Excel.Workbook
Dim Intcounter As Integer
Dim strFilename As String
Dim eachSheetName As String
Dim myRange As String

Dim i As Integer
Dim strSheetName As String

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
'Delete Table Import
strSQL = "Delete tbl_Test from tbl_Test"
DoCmd.RunSQL (strSQL)

'import xls
'This is for the GetOpenFileName function in comdlg32.dll(public vaiables)

strFilename = BrowseFile("C:\", ".xls")

Set xlWorkbook = Excel.Workbooks.Open(strFilename)
Intcounter = xlWorkbook.Sheets.Count

i = 1
Do Until i = Intcounter + 1
'Sheet Name and Range
strSheetName = xlWorkbook.Sheets(i).Name
eachSheetName = strSheetName + "$"
myRange = eachSheetName + "A7:T110"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "Test1", strFilename, False, myRange

'Modify the Field1 of Test1
Dim db As Database
Dim rst As Recordset
Dim rsTable As Recordset

Dim ValueOfF1 As String

Set db = CurrentDb
Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Text1")
With rst

.Fields.Append "DueDate", adDate
With rst!DueDate
While Not rst.EOF
rst!DueDate.Value = eachSheetName
End With
End With
Set rst = Noting

i = i + 1

Set xlWorkbook = Nothing
End Sub
