Convert XLS To Any
Convert XLS To Any is an easy-to-use software utility designed to turn Excel files (XLS format) into other types, such as TXT, HTML, CSV, MDB, DBF and WK1. It does not come packed with complex features or configuration settings, so it can be handled by all types of users, even the ones less experienced with conversion tools.
Quick setup and simple GUI
The installation operation is fast and does not require special attention. As for the interface, Convert XLS To Any opts for a regular window with a plain and simple structure, where you can use the Explorer-based folder structure to navigate directories and locate Excel files for conversion.
Set simple output settings to start conversion
Aside from XLS, the tool can turn MDB, TXT, CSV and DBF files into other formats. All you have to do is point out the output directory (same as the source or custom) and format, in order to start the conversion procedure.
Batch processing is supported, which means that you can select multiple files from the same directory to encode at the same time, in order to reduce the workload. The details shown for each file in the list include the name, size, type and date of modification.
In addition, it is possible to preview the XLS sheets in the main frame. Apart from the fact that you can open the output directory without leaving the interface as well as consult a help manual, there are no other notable options provided by this software utility.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool carries out conversion jobs very fast and has minimal impact on PC performance, running on low CPU and RAM. There were no kind of issues throughout our evaluation, since Convert XLS To Any did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.
On the other hand, the full package is extremely expensive, especially considering the fact that Convert XLS To Any does not integrate advanced settings for power users. Similar features and performance results can be obtained from similar apps in its category which are less pricey and even free in some cases.
