Convert XLSX to CSV Via Command Line

 

Excel is a wonderful piece of software in general but cracks quickly begin to show when you need to convert Excel-authored content to other formats such as CSV in bulk. It is a common requirement though in all sorts of commercial settings and one that is really better handled by a dedicated solution - ideally one that can run quietly on a server in the background while you concentrate on your work.

Convert XLSX to CSV Via Command Line

Total Excel Converter X is our flagship server XLSX CSV converter solution. It incorporates all of the power of the desktop version of the software with the ability to run it directly on a server or even integrate it into your own web-based applications through its support for ActiveX.

The advantages of having a server based XLSX converter to hand are numerous and the software ships with a number of specific features that make conversion to CSV particularly easy:

  • You can convert several XLSX files into one CSV.
  • Use the built-in renamer options to add elements such as worksheet names or counters to your file names.
  • Add barcodes or logos to the header or footer of pages.
  • Choose from a range of standard delimiters or define your own when converting.
  • Use the built-in fit-to-page functionality to avoid having to step through individual files post-conversion.

Total Excel Converter X runs quietly in the background on your server without pestering you with interrupting messages or forcing you to step through a GUI. It can also be called directly from the terminal and the ability to convert XLSX to CSV via command line is a huge productivity boost in all manner of scenarios.

Total Excel Converter X is the product of many years of iterative improvement and refinement through extensive user testing. It is a heavyweight, server based tool available at a fraction of the price of competing solutions and orders of magnitude cheaper than developing similar functionality in-house.

With thousands of happy customers worldwide, we are confident that our software will match your conversion requirements. That is why we urge you to download a free trial today and discover its full range of features for yourself before purchasing!
