The easiest way to do it is to link the CSV-file into the Access database as a table. Then you can work on this table as if it was an ordinary access table, for instance by creating an appropriate query based on this table that returns exactly what you want.
You can link the table either manually or with VBA like this
DoCmd.TransferText TransferType:=acLinkDelim, TableName:="tblImport", _
FileName:="C:\MyData.csv", HasFieldNames:=true
UPDATE
Dim db As DAO.Database
' Re-link the CSV Table
Set db = CurrentDb
On Error Resume Next: db.TableDefs.Delete "tblImport": On Error GoTo 0
db.TableDefs.Refresh
DoCmd.TransferText TransferType:=acLinkDelim, TableName:="tblImport", _
FileName:="C:\MyData.csv", HasFieldNames:=true
db.TableDefs.Refresh
' Perform the import
db.Execute "INSERT INTO someTable SELECT col1, col2, ... FROM tblImport " _
& "WHERE NOT F1 IN ('A1', 'A2', 'A3')"
db.Close: Set db = Nothing
Your file seems quite small (297 lines) so you can read and write them quite quickly. You refer to Excel CSV, which does not exists, and you show space delimited data in your example. Furthermore, Access is limited to 255 columns, and a CSV is not, so there is no guarantee this will work
Sub StripHeaderAndFooter()
Dim fs As Object ''FileSystemObject
Dim tsIn As Object, tsOut As Object ''TextStream
Dim sFileIn As String, sFileOut As String
Dim aryFile As Variant
sFileIn = "z:\docs\FileName.csv"
sFileOut = "z:\docs\FileOut.csv"
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set tsIn = fs.OpenTextFile(sFileIn, 1) ''ForReading
sTmp = tsIn.ReadAll
Set tsOut = fs.CreateTextFile(sFileOut, True) ''Overwrite
aryFile = Split(sTmp, vbCrLf)
''Start at line 3 and end at last line -1
For i = 3 To UBound(aryFile) - 1
tsOut.WriteLine aryFile(i)
Next
tsOut.Close
DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, , "NewCSV", sFileOut, False
End Sub
Edit re various comments
It is possible to import a text file manually into MS Access and this will allow you to choose you own cell delimiters and text delimiters. You need to choose External data from the menu, select your file and step through the wizard.
About importing and linking data and database objects -- Applies to: Microsoft Office Access 2003
Introduction to importing and exporting data -- Applies to: Microsoft Access 2010
Once you get the import working using the wizards, you can save an import specification and use it for you next DoCmd.TransferText as outlined by #Olivier Jacot-Descombes. This will allow you to have non-standard delimiters such as semi colon and single-quoted text.
