converting xlsx to xls RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have a system that export Excel 2010 file only.

    On the other hand i have another system (Cognos) that suppose to import those files.

    My problem is that the the Cognos cannot read xlsx files.

    Does any one know any tool to convert xlsx to xls, it should be done automatically and without the need to open Excel.

    I hope i explained clear enough.

  • Hi,

    This forum is for developers that are submitting apps to the Office Store so this isn't the best place for assistance on that topic.

    Is the first system you are referring to Excel 2010 or is it a system that exports from 2010? If that system is Excel I'd recommend http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us for more assistance. If it's not Excel that you are referring to, I'd recommend contacting the system vendor. There may also be other solutions on the web as well.

    Best regards,
