Excel, or XLS format, is a format of Microsoft Excel. It is popular among computer users because Microsoft Excel is now one of the most widespread microcomputer applications. When it comes to comma-separated values or CSV format, it should be said that this format is used to store text and numbers in plain-text form. It is widely supported by consumer, business, and scientific applications.
There are many ways to convert XLS into CSV format, but often people face difficulties exporting files from one format into another. Sometimes we receive letters from our customers, saying:
"I am using a new version of a wages programme that we have used for about 7 years. The upgraded version no longer allows us to export the data to an excel spreadsheet where we have always calculated..."
