i have around 80 .xls files which i need a workflow to change them to .xlsx means need to convert like save as .xlsx.
Ultimately, you are wanting to use this command line tool: excelcnv.exe
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\excelcnv.exe" -oice "C:\in\MyFile.xls" "C:\out\MyFile.xlsx”
If this is a one-time need, just run something like this from your cmd window. Otherwise, you can befriend the Run Command tool or use an Event to run this task.
I am trying to make this solution work through the run command tool for all files in a folder and I cant seem to make it work.
for %F in (*.xls) do "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\excelcnv.exe" -nme -oice "%~fF" "%~fF"x
