How convert Excel file from a single column to a single row via VBA

Experts just solved an issue for me where I needed to convert data to be viewed via an Excel file from a single row to a single column.

Now I have to do just the reverse.  I have a form that I use to select the Excel file that looks like...

Current
But I now need to make it look like:

Needed
How can I do this? The reason is because I'm going to write the values to a temp table via:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 10, "tblTempNotesImport", Me.txtFileName, True

Open in new window

Gustav's comment does transform the record, but does not guarantee the order of columns.
To do that, a bit of VBA code is required.

No, it sorts the columns from the field you pivot on.
If you need another order or to exclude some fields, you can apply In:

TRANSFORM First([F2]) AS FirstValue
SELECT "Values" AS Field
FROM tblYourTable
GROUP BY "Values"
PIVOT [F1] In (<FirstValue>, <SecondValue>, ... , <LastValue);

"it sorts the columns from the field you pivot on."
This is what I meant.

The VBA code is to automate the arrangement of the columns as they are originally arranged.

Try this sample database.
Compare results by running crosstab query and that using the code running from the form.

But you wrote "guarantee" as if the sequence was or could be random. It is not.
