Before proceeding further make sure column names in the excel should be same as in the .mdb file. You are getting this error because your system don't have Access Database Engine. Install Access Database Engine and restart your system.(if it's asked for).

SELECT…INTO Statement (Microsoft Access SQL)[^] is wrong!

SELECT * INTO [MS Access;Database=C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\test\CA\book.mdb].[Sheet1] FROM [Sheet1$A4:D <missed final row> ]"

I do strongly recommend to define set of fields to be imported.

SELECT <Field_names> INTO ... 
FROM ...

It might help you to undestand how to fetch data from MS Excel files: How to: Get Data from Multiple Workbooks using One OleDbConnection?[^]
