Default changing data type when importing Excel worksheet

Hello all! I am importing a worksheet from Excel and one of the fields Imports as a number. Since I do not perform any arithmetic on this field, I want it to be a text field (also in case they begin to add letters to this field). Is there anyway I can change the field type during the import procedure or do I have to do it afterwards? Here is my code for the import.

Public Function ImportFileVersion() As Boolean

Dim strPath As String
Dim strSQl As String

'Set the path
strPath = "S:\MIS\admin\MidAtl_Hierarchy_2004.xls"
strSQl = "DELETE * FROM tblHierarchy"

'If table exist, delete and update with latest version
'If table does not exist, continue
On Error Resume Next
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.RunSQL strSQl
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True

'Import the data only in this range from Excel
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, _
    "tblHierarchy", strPath, True, "A1:H423"

'Open the table
DoCmd.OpenTable "tblHierarchy", acViewNormal

ImportFileVersion = True

End Function

Also if you see how my code can be more efficient, please feel free to chop it up.

Thanks in advance!
