How to read data from a CSV file with a variable name to an excel workbook


I have a CSV file with a  variable name  “Daily Postings 18092015” but the date keeps changing every day when a new CSV file is created in my folder :S:My Documents.

Basically i need a VBA to open this CSV file using a notepad and copy the data to  my Excel workbook “Sample file.xlsm” Sheet “Postings” using the Delimiter Semicolon (;)

Since i am new to macro im finding it difficult to achieve this…Appreciate your help
