From that link (where a guy asks pretty much what you are asking) I'm copying :

You need to loop through the rows and execute the insert statement for each row of data 1 at a time so something more like:

dim arrUpload as variant
dim c as range
For each c in Range("UploadRange").columns(1)
 arrUpload = range(cells(c.row,1),cells(c.row,range("Uploadrange").columns.count))
Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
cn.ConnectionString = "Driver={SQL Server};Server=PLPST1209;User ID=abc;Password=abc123;Database=Customer_Info"
strSQL = "Insert into Customer_Info Select " & arrUpload
cn.Execute (strSQL)
set cn = nothing

And later corrects that code with:

For each c in Range("UploadRange").columns(1)
 for each rc in Range("UploadRange").rows(c.row)
   strArr = rc.Value & "," 
strArr = left(strArr,Len(strArr)-1)  
strSQL = "Insert into Customer_Info (Field1, Field2, Field3, etc) Select " & strArr

as there were no commas between the values. Still you might want to change this to include single quotes around fields for this to handle strings.
