Your process seems to be correct with a few questions. You state using Excel. Not clear if this works as it should as I personally don't use Excel anymore (left Windows a few years ago for Linux). The preferred method would be to get the data into Calc then copy and paste into Base from there. Also, Firebird embedded has a different approach to data than other databases. The data is NOT committed to the database until the .odb is saved. You may transfer the data, even view it in the copied tables, but it will not be in the actual database until a save is performed.

Have created a number of Firebird embedded databases from various sources using this method without a problem.
