Reference a specific cell when importing an Excel file into Access

Last Modified: 2019-11-29
strSourceFieldsList = "MID([F1],1,6), MID([F1],7,50), [F2], [F3], 'November 19'"

In the above section of code, rather than having the month and year hardcoded as it is in the fifth field above, I'd like to instead grab the value from cell D10 of the Excel import file. Cell D10 is a header cell that always contains the month and year of the import file/report.
