Below is the code that reads and converts.

    for FILE in glob.glob("SOR935*"):
        filepresent = os.path.isfile('/home/hatterx/Desktop/Bronto_Files/FACTS_bronto_import_add_'+dt+'.csv')

        cf1 = csv.DictReader(f1, fieldnames=('CustNo1', 'CustNo2', 'LastOrderDate', 'LastOrderAmount', 'FirstName', 'LastName', 'UserNo', 'EmailAddress', 'Franchise', 'PrevOrderDate', 'PrevOrderAmount', 'State', 'ZIP', 'Amt1', 'Amt2', 'Amt3', 'SalesPerson', 'WEBID'))
        cf2 = csv.DictWriter(f2, new_field_names)
