Q&A 20: I’d love the option to go the other way, csv to xls

Q: It seems XLS as destination is meant to convert Xls as source file. I’d love the option to go the other way, csv to xls. Oh well, feature request.
A: You are correct the original idea was to convert XLS files but on your request we added this feature request in version v2020.7.12.0

We added some screenhosts to give you  an idea about the setup. The Source is a Windows folder:

LimagitoX File Mover Windows Source Folder

We added a file filter to only include *.txt and *.cvs files:

LimagitoX File Mover File Filter

As Destination we added our ‘Add XLS’ option:

LimagitoX File Mover XLS as destination

The Csv file that we are going to convert has a comma as delimiter. Our goal is to convert the Csv source file to a Xls file. We enabled ‘Change Extension’ and added .xls as ‘Extension’. File Format was set to ‘Xls, Excel 97-2000-XP-2003’.
