  • Version 2.0 update
    Even though our efforts for version 2.0 still focus on the conversion engine overhaul, we are also updating some cosmetics and introducing smaller new conversion features. 

    We would like to give a preview of those changes.

    Updated interface:

    We updated the interface for the profile manager to combine the related settings on one screen:

    And we also added some new conversion options for new cell types:

    With the use of the NPOI library we had to re-write the text formatting algorithm for each type of cell which caused a significant delay. 
    As a result of these efforts we have a better reliability when converting content of a cell and matching it with its text representation as shown in Microsoft Excel including better handling of raw data in cells:
    • containing text > 255 characters
    • region-defined formatted numbers
    • convert format to system regional settings
    • ...
    We are still in the process of adding existing features to the new version such as the log viewer and logging options.

    Keep watching our site for more updates.

  • Excel converter 2.0 update
    It's been a while since we posted some news regarding XLS2CSV Converter, so it's a good time to give some details on our current focus. 

    We are currently working on version 2.0 of Excel converter and are halfway its development.
    The most important changes compared to the previous 1.x version include:
    • completely re-implemented XLS2CSV Converter in C# thereby removing dependencies with external DLLs and AutoIt
    • use of a new conversion engine (NPOI) which gives us more control and allows for more conversion options and eliminates the need for the Microsoft Access Database components
    here for more information on NPOI!

    The application name will be updated to Excel Converter because we plan to introduce new features after version 2.0 that are not restricted to the CSV output format, but also include smarter ways to construct data for output to html, sql, xml, ... and eventually a reverse conversion from a fixed file or csv file format to Excel.

    We still have some work ahead of us adding all existing options but it will be worth the wait and our current test results are looking very positive.

    Come back regularly for more updates!

  • Some more information on the aggregate statistics
    We are getting an increasing amount of questions related to the statistics that we collect through the use of our application.
    Important to know is that we use this information to learn how our application is used and what quality it delivers in the field with the goal to adapt it where needed and to improve its performance and that wdo NOT collect personal information such as user name, system name, file-names or content of the files being converted, ...

    In the FAQ you can find out exactly what information we collect and we've also included some dashboards we use to visualize all this information (thanks to Google Analytics).
