how are the headers differ from each file?

can you map the new header to the existing headers?

pls try

Set objFSO = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
    'create a csv file

    'open an existing csv file with writing ability
    Set objF = objFSO.OpenTextFile(Path + "Test1.csv")
    aText = Split(objF.readall, vbCrLf)
    aText(0) = "Your new Header"
    strText = Join(aText, vbCrLf)
    Set objF = Nothing
    Set objF = objFSO.OpenTextFile(Path + "Test1.csv", 2)
    objF.write (strText)
    Set objF = Nothing
