Remove spaces from column headers

Hi Experts,
I'm looking for either a VB function, script or DOS command that should do the following
remove all spaces from the all column names of a given excel sheet (or CSV file).
this should combine two words into one like "visit date" column should become VisitDate.
Thanks

For an Excel sheet - removes spaces from headers until it hits a blank header (assumes headers begin in Column A):
Sub RemoveSpaces()
rowNum = 1
colNum = 0
Range("A" & rowNum).Select
Do While (Selection.Offset(0, colNum) <> "")
   Selection.Offset(0, colNum) = Replace(Selection.Offset(0, colNum), " ", "")
   colNum = colNum + 1
Loop
End Sub
