Macro to open a .txt file and save as an .xlsx file

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I need a macro that will go to a spceified file location in excel (located in cell a1) that will search all subfolders within that path, look for a *_*.txt file  and it will open the text file, save it as an .xlsx file, remove the underscore from the name and tack on a date (located in cell a2 ('11-02-2011).  Is that possible?  Thanks!!!
