Syntax for Excel in an Execute SQL Task to drop a specific cell

Syntax for Excel in an Execute SQL Task to drop a specific cell

I'm trying to delete two specific cells in a ss. (A32 and A33)
I'm using an Exxecute SQL task to do this. I've seen examples online that show this syntax:

Drop Table ['My Sheet Summ$A32:A33'] - The name of my sheet is ['Agent Summary Report-Agent Summ$']

This doesn't work, since it can't find a sheet labeled, My Sheet Summ$A32:A33

So I've tried all alternatives I can think of:

Drop Table ['Agent Summary Report-Agent Summ$'](A32:A33)
Drop Table ['Agent Summary Report-Agent Summ$']A32:A33


Anyone know what the syntax should be to refer to a cell or cell range?
Here is the web page that I'm using for reference:


Cross posted in the SQL group.
Thanks in advance!
