CSVs to WBs

                                         Sample File:  CSVsToWBs.xls        

PROBLEM: "I have a folder full of CSV files (or TXT files) that I would like to convert to Excel files."
  1. User can indicate the type of file to convert to Excel format
  2. All the files are in a specified folder
  3. User can indicate whether original files are deleted, moved, or left in place
  4. If files are moved, the Make Folders (UDF function) is used to insure the destination exists
  5. If a file has already been converted once, the macro will replace/update with the new conversion
