    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’.

    We’ve add the following new options to the XLS(X)/CSV as Destination option.

    Sheets, delete options:

    With this option you can select which sheets you want to delete using index or name of the sheet(s). Remember, the sheet index starts at 1.

    With the setup in the screenshot below we are going to delete the sheet with index 5 AND the sheet with name ‘SheetNameToDelete’.

    Colums, delete options:

    With this option you can select which columns you want to delete on a selected sheet. The selection of the sheet is possible using index or name of the sheet. Remember, column and sheet indexes start at 1.

    With the setup in the screenshot below we are going to delete column with index 2 on sheet with index 1.

    Rows, delete options:

    With this option you can select which rowss you want to delete on a selected sheet. The selection of the sheet is possible using index or name of the sheet. Remember, row and sheet indexes start at 1.

    With the setup in the screenshot below we are going to delete row with index 1 on sheet with index 1.

    Cell Values, rename options:

    With this option you can rename cell values in rows and colmuns on a selected sheet. The selection of the sheet is possible using index or name of the sheet. Remember, row , column and sheet indexes start at 1 (value = 0 = all rows/columns).

    With the setup in the screenshot below we are going to rename all columns of the first row on sheet with index 1. The text part ‘Before’ will be replaced by ‘After’ if the cell type is ‘Text’ (String).

    Please let us know if you have any question or need help with the setup

    XLS as Destination

    Dear Users,

    Version v2019.4.27.0

    On user request we’ve added an option to convert xls files. At the moment the setup is only available from the Remote Setup tool (WebRemote will follow soon).

    The request we got was to convert xls(x) to csv (txt based) without Excel being installed but also other conversions are possible (xls tot xlsx, xlsx to xls, …).

    File Format possibilities:

    • Automatic, Automatically detect the type of the file when opening files.
    • Xls, Excel 97-2000-XP-2003
    • Text, Delimiter separated values. Depending on the delimiter, this can be csv, tab delimited text, etc.
    • Pxl, Pocket Excel 1.0 or 2.0
    • Xlsx, Excel 2007 standard file format. Note that this is *not* a macro enabled file format. If you want to save a file with macros, you need to use Xlsm instead.
    • Xlsm, Excel 2007 macro enabled file format.

    Sheet Name = Name of the sheet that needs to be converted

    Encoding = Encoding for the generated file, when writing a Text-delimited file (csv or txt). This parameter has no effect on xls/x files.

    • UTF8
    • UTF7
    • Unicode
    • Default
    • BigEndianUnicode
    • ASCII
    • ANSI

    Delimiter = Delimiter Char to use if Format Text ( #09 = Tab )

    Don’t forget to set the Filename filter to include the file types you want to convert.

    Further options like delete sheet(s), delete column(s),  renaming of cell values, .. are on our todo list.

    Regards,

    Limagito Team
