Hi All,

I have a question please:

Can xls file be converted to xlsx within an Outsystems application?!

I hope that makes sense.

Thank you in anticipation.

Hi Anastasios,

I did not come across a forge component that can do that. 

You have two options to explore

1. Use a clouds service with an API that you can consume like https://cloudconvert.com/api/v1

2. Create an extension to wrap a c# library that does the conversion https://medium.com/@lockevn/convert-excel-format-xls-to-xlsx-using-c-3e1a348fca22
