I need help saving/moving my files from one folder into another folder, using ACCESS vba

Hi Experts,
I need help saving/moving my files from one folder into another folder, once I have processed the file. Once the files have been saved/moved into the new folder, they need to be removed from the original folder.  How can i do this?  The code below is what I use to loop through the files in a directory and process the files.
thanks in advance.

Private Sub Command2_Click()
  Const cstrFolder As String = "C:\Schedules\"
  Dim i As Long, x As Long, lng As Long
  Dim xlApp As Object
  Dim xlWrk As Object
  Dim xlSheet As Object
  Dim sql As String
  Dim strExt As String, strFile As String, strTable As String

  
  
  Set xlApp = VBA.CreateObject("Excel.Application")
  xlApp.Visible = False
'
  strExt = ".xls"
  lng = Len(strExt)
  strFile = Dir(cstrFolder & "*" & strExt)

  If Len(strFile) = 0 Then
    MsgBox "No Files Found"
  Else
    Do While Len(strFile) > 0
        'MsgBox (cstrFolder & " - " & strFile)
        'ADD EXCEL CODE HERE
        Set xlWrk = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(cstrFolder & strFile) '("C:\ExcelImportFile.xls")
        Set xlSheet = xlWrk.Sheets("Sheet1")
        

        For i = 11 To 41
            sql = "Insert Into [tblTechAvailability] (Day,Availability,Notes) VALUES ('" & xlSheet.Cells(i, 1).Value & "','" & xlSheet.Cells(i, 2).Value & "','" & xlSheet.Cells(i, 3).Value & "')"
            DoCmd.RunSQL sql
        Next i
        
        xlWrk.Close
        'xlApp.Quit
    
        Set xlSheet = Nothing
        Set xlWrk = Nothing
        'Set xlApp = Nothing
        
        'END EXCEL CODE HERE
       x = x + 1 'KEEPS COUNT OF IMPORTED FILES
       strFile = Dir()
    Loop
    xlApp.Quit
    Set xlApp = Nothing
    
    MsgBox x & " File(s) were imported"
  End If
End Sub

two ways you can do this

Sub Copy_One_File()
    FileCopy "C:\Users\xName\SourceFolder\Test.xls", "C:\Users\xName\DestFolder\Test.xls"
      
      'delete the original file
      kill "C:\Users\xName\SourceFolder\Test.xls"
      
End Sub

Sub Move_Rename_One_File()
'you change path of the files
    Name "C:\Users\xName\SourceFolder\Test.xls" As "C:\Users\xName\DestFolder\TestNew.xls"
End Sub
