MS Excel produces tables in XLS or XLSX format (depending on the version). Such files store structured data, allow various mathematic calculations, etc. However they do not provide the full functionality of data bases. If you convert Excel to SQL format, you can operate them as a relational database. SQL is a universal database format used in various DBMS.
Such conversion can be done using Total Excel Converter, a program specifically developed for exporting XLS files to various formats, such as:
Regardless of what format you select, the first step of conversion is selecting source files. This can be done directly in the program, as it features build-in navigation wizard. When you convert Excel to SQL in batch, to select Excel to CSV conversion, you need to press CSV button in the format bar. Then you will see the settings wizard that automatically pops up after choosing a target format.
In this wizard you can set specific options for conversion. You can set destination address for SQL copies, if you need them to be stored in specific folder. Also there is ability to set file name template. When you convert files in batch, this allows storing SQL copies in the right order. A template can contain source file name, number of sheet or current time.
Also this Excel SQL converter can export spreadsheets into separate SQL files. This option helps to divide original Excel files for handier use, if they are too large.
Be sure that all data from Excel originals will be properly exported to CSV, without any loss or misrepresentation. The SQL copies will be compatible with all database processors that support this format. For now you can try Total Excel Converter in free trial to see its advantages in action. Do this right now!
