I need to define the fields for:        

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "Totals", Me.txtTotalsPath, True

This solution in this below link worked for me when I needed to change the specification on a .txt file

BUT now I have a .xls file that I need to change specification and I can't find an "advanced" button...  HELP!

there is no import specification needed to import a .xls, .xlsx files

what you  need to do, is to import the excel file into a temp Table

then do what you need to do, using the temp Table
