Access VBA to normalize data in Excel

I have the following macro in Excel (see normalized code in the attached files section) I would like to know how I can run this from Access.

Below is the code I have so far in between the start and end is where I am stuck

Private Sub cmdImport_Click()

On Error GoTo Err_cmdImport_Click

DoCmd.Echo False
DoCmd.SetWarnings False

Dim strMsg As String, strTitle As String
Dim IntStyle As Integer
Dim strMasterFileName As String
Dim strFileName As String
Dim strChoice As String

'Build the master import file name
strMasterFileName = CurrentProject.Path & "\Forecast Master Import.xls"

'Check if Master file exists
   If Dir(strMasterFileName) = "" Then
   strMsg = "The master file can not be located. Please load the Detailed Project Master.xlsm file in " & CurrentProject.Path
        strTitle = "Master File Required"
        IntStyle = vbOKOnly
        MsgBox strMsg, IntStyle, strTitle
        'Cancel = True
        GoTo ExitNow
    End If

    'Open the Excel file
    Dim xlApp As Object
    Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    xlApp.Workbooks.Open (strMasterFileName)
    xlApp.Visible = True

'I would like what the macro is doing and code here to run and normalize the data


xlApp.Application.DisplayAlerts = False
xlApp.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:=strFileName, CreateBackup:=False
xlApp.Application.DisplayAlerts = True

'Build the import table
strTableName = "00-NormalizedData"

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, strTableName, strMasterFileName, True, "Normalized!"

    DoCmd.Echo True
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True
    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    DoCmd.Echo True
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True
    Resume Exit_cmdImport_Click

End Sub
Sub Normalize()
    On Error Resume Next
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    On Error GoTo 0
    Dim r As Long, c As Long, LastR As Long, LastC As Long, arr As Variant, DestR As Long

    With ActiveSheet
        LastR = .Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
        LastC = .Cells(1, .Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
        arr = .Range(.[a1], .Cells(LastR, LastC)).Value
    End With
    Worksheets.Add(After:=Worksheets(1)).Name = "Normalized"
    [a1:g1] = Array("Part_ID", "Desc", "Rev", "Supplier_Part_ID", "UOM", "Want_Date", "Qty")
    DestR = 1
    For r = 2 To LastR
        For c = 6 To LastC
            DestR = DestR + 1
            Range(Cells(DestR, 1), Cells(DestR, 7)) = Array(arr(r, 1), arr(r, 2), arr(r, 3), arr(r, 4), arr(r, 5), arr(1, c), arr(r, c))
End Sub

Do you like to have result in Access table or in Excel?
tprocketAuthor Commented:
I want to run the code from access which will normalize the data in the excel spreadsheet and then import the excel data into an access table.
Can you convert xls to csv? It is preferrable way for access - to work with text file.
First 5 columns will be always the same? How many date columns can be?
tprocketAuthor Commented:
I have a delimited txt file available see attached.

Yes the first five columns will always be the same, the date columns can change.

Text is better. But What you like to get for this columns:
05/16/11 - it is clear - date
May-2011 - ?
Do you need column Total?
This should be saved as text or as date?
tprocketAuthor Commented:
1. May-2011 should equal 5/1/2011 save as date
2. Total column not required
