Advanced CSV Converter

CNET Editors' review

Advanced CSV Converter is an easy way to convert CSV files into a variety of other formats. Although its basic features are simple enough for anyone to use, it also contains more advanced features for people who are more comfortable working with this type of conversion.

The program's interface is sleek and intuitive, with a wizard-style dialogue that takes people through the process of selecting and converting a file. Users can start with a CSV or text file and convert it to a variety of other formats, including Dbase, HTML, Excel, SQL, and more. Users are able to specify a delimiter and sort and filter their results. The program processes the conversion quickly and can optionally display the results for immediate viewing. Our only quibble with the program is that it closes itself after completing a conversion, which is annoying when you're trying to perform multiple conversions. This is a fairly minor complaint, though. The built-in Help file is brief and definitely assumes some familiarity with CSV file conversions. Some of the more advanced features, such as the command-line utility, are definitely meant for experienced users, and the Help file offers almost no explanation. We wish that the program were a bit more conducive to learning these functions, but overall, we like that it holds appeal for users of all levels.

Advanced CSV is free to try, but the trial version only converts 50 records at a time. The program installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Great Product and Fantastic Support!"

    June 12, 2013  |   By skyward01

    Version: Advanced CSV Converter 3.85

    Pros

    - Does what it says and does it quickly
    - Very simple, intuitive interface
    - Ability to sort on any CSV column
    - Ability to exclude CSV columns from XML file
    - Received responsive, polite help with application

    Cons

    - None that I've found for what I use it for

    Summary

    I needed to convert a 60,000 record CSV file to XML for a website and chose Advanced CSV Converter for the value and ratings. Using a Windows 7 netbook with 4 GB of RAM it took 11 seconds to convert the file, and my PHP SimpleXMLElement program reads the file just fine.

    I emailed questions about the software and received a quick response from the support team. They even made a few tweaks to the program to make operation more clear.

    "Worth purchasing for the dbf file conversion"

    May 22, 2011  |   By kandresen2

    Version: Advanced CSV Converter 3.15

    Pros

    Microsoft products no longer export dbf files. This tool fills the gap. Analyze data before converting automatically creates field lengths based on the longest string of data in each data column. Import dbf into Access w/o configuring each field size

    Cons

    none come to mind

    Summary

    Product is fast, light on resources, and simple. The company has continued to upgrade the product over the years without additional charge. As a person who often converts between multiple database file formats, this software has made my life much easier. If you have similar needs, I highly recommend it.

    "Intelligent conversion of CSV to multiple db file types"

    March 15, 2011  |   By kandresen2

    Version: Advanced CSV Converter 2.89

    Pros

    Easy to use. Quickly converts files. Intelligent conversion to multiple file formats.

    Cons

    it was not free

    Summary

    This software is simple to use and is an excellent solution to Microsoft removing support for dbase (dbf) files. This software has an option to analyze data to determine optimal field lengths before conversion (no more lengthy MS Access fields on import!). I usually search for free programs, but this one exceeded expectations and was well worth purchasing.
