Merging data files into XLS, not CSV

Merging data files into XLS, not CSV

Merging data files into XLS, not CSV

When merging data files into a spreadsheet, is there a way to merge into an XLS file instead of a CSV?  Thanks!

RE: Merging data files into XLS, not CSV

If the program you're exporting data from can save XLS files, have you tried just opening those in Excel, and copying the data into your target spreadsheet ?

RE: Merging data files into XLS, not CSV

I want to take XML data from PDF forms, and merge them (using the Adobe software) into an XLS file (I can only find the option to do this using CSV at the moment).  

I need it in XLS format because this file is the data source for another XLS file, and Excel can't do the linking on a CSV file.

Opening the CSV file and converting it to XLS seems cumbersome as the data source file will likely be updated quite regularly.

RE: Merging data files into XLS, not CSV

You need an automated way to handle the XML data - that's outside my area of expertise - you need someone who's a middleware expert - see if there's a programmer on your IT staff who can help. (I have one here - I describe what I need, and he makes it happen!)
