.xlsb to .xlsx

Hi All,

I am stuck with a challenge to where I need to get the list of all sheet names in xlsb file.

I suppose the only solution to this would be converting the xlsb file to xlsx and get the sheet names.  Can anyone help me with how can that be achieved.

 

 

Thanks in advance

hi @TandelGouravi 

The only issue is that the .xlsb format does not support the "input list of sheet names". However there are some workaround solutions that others had done:

Hi @TandelGouravi - I have created a workflow, which saves as all XLSBs to XLSCs without worrying what's inside. This is similar as if you'd open all your XLSBs in Excel and "Save as..." them.

In order to run this workflow you need:

1) Connect your Directory tool to the right folder

2) Check location of the "excelcnv.exe" file on your laptop and change it in the formula tool, if needed.

 

Is that something that you wanted?
