I currently have a lot of excel files that I am importing into excel as binary (xlsb). I would like to convert them to excel XLXS format in the Alteryx workflow. Is that even possible instead of converting them in the workflow instead of out the workflow.
If you're working with the data in Alteryx, there is no need to convert it from an xlsb to an xlsx. If Alteryx can read it, it can work with it.
As long as your data can fit in an xlsx file, you can use the Output data tool to save it out with a different format than you read it in with, or a Table and Render tool if you need to apply different formatting.
I need to convert XLS to XLSX for files with multiple tabs to be processed properly. Would the download of the driver help address this? Workflow will run on Alteryx server so any added information regarding that is appreciated. I’m thinking driver method might mean we don’t need to convert.
