Make Multiple Lines Into A CSV Format with Notepad ++

I have about 3000 records in this format, I want to import them into Excel. I tried the Text To Columns but that didn't help. Using Notepad ++, or VBA, how can I make them in csv format?

If every record has the same 6 rows then in Notepad++ you can record a macro and then press and hold Ctrl + shift + P to play the macro until you reach the end of the file.

For me I did this (while macro is recording) by setting the cursor at the start of the file and pressed End, then comma then delete and repeated until the six lines were on one.  Then pressed left to go to the next line.  Then stop recording and press Ctrl + shift + P until the end of the file is reached.

If the records have a different number of lines then I will look at a VBA solution.

Send the resultant file (how you want to be) adding atleast 2 records in it.  I would like to know what is your requirement.
