Directions for converting to/from a XLS file are given below:

Converting From XLS file to a different file type

1.  Select the ‘Convert Files’ Action To Do

2. Select the input file path. For a whole folder be certain to use the *.ext format.  For example if you want to convert the folder of xls files located in “C:\input folder\” then use “C:\input folder\*.xls”.

     Select the ‘Convert XLS’ conversion method. 

     If you are using the ‘Convert XLS’ conversion method, specify the Original File Format.  In this case it is “[-4143] Microsoft Excel Workbook (*.XLS)”.

    Click on the Options button and choose the sheets, ranges and whether to include values or 'formulas and values' to convert.     Also within the Options button select the “CSV, TSV…” tab to choose what character you are using to distinguish each piece of data within each record. By default the comma is used.  If you are converting to a ‘Fixed Width Text File’ (‘Convert XLS’ conversion method is required for this), then click on the “Converting to/from a Fixed Width Text File” tab and specify how you would like it done.

3.  Now specify the Target (output) file path. If you are doing a whole folder, then specify the whole folder using the “*.ext” format (for example "c:\output\*.CSV").  Finally, specify the ‘Convert To File Format” target (output) file type.  In this case it may be one of two choices, “[6] Character Separated (*.CSV)” or “[23] Character Separated Unicode (*.csv)”.  Note that you will have more choices available if you choose the ‘MS Excel’ conversion method.

4. Click the CONVERT button on the tool bar to start converting.

 

Converting To XLS file from a CSV File

1.  Select the ‘Convert Files’ Action To Do

2.  Select the input file path. For a whole folder be certain to use the *.ext format.  For example if you want to convert the folder of csv files located in “C:\input folder\” then use “C:\input folder\*.csv".

    Choose either ‘Convert XLS’ or ‘MS Excel’ conversion method.  The ‘Convert XLS’ conversion method can be 10-20 times faster than the ‘MS Excel’ conversion method.  If you are using something other than a comma for the delimitation character pick the ‘Convert XLS’ conversion method.

    If you are using the ‘Convert XLS’ conversion method, specify the Original (input) File Format.  If using a CSV file, click on the Options button and then the “CSV, TSV…” tab to choose what character you want to distinguish each piece of data within each record of the csv file. By default the comma is used.  If you are converting from a ‘Fixed Width Text File’ (‘Convert XLS’ conversion method is required for this), then click on the “Converting to/from a Fixed Width Text File” tab and specify each column width.

3.  Now specify the Target (output) file path. If you are doing a whole folder, then specify the whole folder using the “*.ext” format (for example "C:\Output\*.XLS").  Finally, specify the ‘Convert To File Format” target (output) file type.  In this case it will be “[-4143] Microsoft Excel Workbook (*.XLS)”.

4. Click the CONVERT button on the tool bar to start converting.
