@shankar12,

 

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.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark
