This software utility helps convert Excel spreadsheets of XLS format to the newer XLSX format and vice versa.
Microsoft changed the native versions of its office application file formats. The DOC format of Word up to Word 2003 changed to DOCX format. Same applies to Excel. The XLS file format that was standard up to Excel 2003, changed to XLSX from Excel 2007 onwards. The PowerPoint file format too changed. Whenever such changes occur, many users tend to continue with the older version. Besides, MS also changed the menu style of all of its Office tool into what is called a “ribbon”. At first look these looked quite complicated and that prevented many users from switching to the newer version. That led to a situation where a substantial portion of users were still using the older version. Unfortunately these newer versions are not backwards compatible. You needed to convert the older version to the newer one to be able to use it in the newer version. Same thing happened if your customer/client sent you a document in the newer format and you are still on the older version.
This software tool thus comes in handy whenever you come across situations as above. This tool is capable of doing the conversion either way. You could select different files at the same time or browse folders along with the subfolders for migrating excel files from one format to another. The tool comes with a simple interface and most users should not face any difficulty in using it effectively. The utility also has a batch capability so that a large number of files could easily be processed at one time. This is a good and handy tool.
