Editors' Review

+

Batch XLSX to XLS Converter provides a simple tool for converting Excel file types. The program's layout is basic enough for any skill level to have success with.

The program's interface struck us as drastically different from other converters we'd tested. It was so basic--only containing a few commands--that we found experimenting for a few seconds was more helpful than reading the instructional Help file. The program avoided the pitfalls of other converters by not allowing us multiple options for conversion. We liked that XLS files were converted to XLSX files and vice versa, with no opportunities to change this process. We enjoyed the freedom to choose single files, multiple files, or entire folders for conversion. We expected the conversion to happen instantly, but it actually took almost a minute. However, this wasn't a huge inconvenience, especially since the test files all went to their intended destinations and kept all their data. The program also offered a nice special feature, its search engine, which helped us track down missing files. We were confident that even users who had never converted a file would move effortlessly through this program.

Batch XLSX to XLS Converter comes with a seven-day trial. While not as fast as we hoped, the program is still a great conversion tool and we recommend it.

    "Did not work for me"

    October 12, 2011   |   By Jocelyn Boyer

    Version: Batch XLSX to XLS Converter 2011.3.827

    Pros

    Good marketing but did not work when I try to re-open them with Excel 2003.

    Cons

    I feel the pay version work better but it is not free. The publicity then is misleading

    Summary

    I am sad.

    June 17, 2011   |   By ChochyR

    Version: Batch XLSX to XLS Converter 2011.3.605.1367

    Pros

    Not sure if it would have worked, but my virus protection kicked in so I deleted it!

    Cons

    Not sure if it would have worked, but my virus protection kicked in so I deleted it!

    Summary

    I usually do not question whether or not a program downloaded off c.net is virus free and have never had a problem that I know of until now.

    "Don't download it."

    March 13, 2011   |   By richard041350

    Version: Batch XLSX to XLS Converter 2011.3.310.1347

    Pros

    I didn't get that far. I thought it was a 2 meg download; it linked to a 37 meg download. The regular MS converter which works well for is 27 megs and didn't force unwanted extras down my throat.

    Cons

    Even though I said to not install Bing or any other extra, it shoved the bing search window plus the bing search tool bar down my throat.

    Summary

    If you like Bing and your computer disregarding the options you select, the converter program may function for you. The faulty install procedure alone scared me off. I didn't see a zero star option here, or I would have marked it instead of 1.

    "Borderline Malware"

    February 01, 2011   |   By wkgriffiths

    Version: Batch XLSX to XLS Converter 2011.3.124.1337

    Pros

    There are no good points.

    Cons

    Crashes in Vista, fails to convert in XP, Worse, it changes your search provider without asking permission. Making that type of change to your system is inexcusable. The Editorial Review should have called them on that.

    Summary

    Don't use this product. Do not trust any other product from this company.

    "Didn't work for Excel 2007 -> Excel 2003"

    December 14, 2010   |   By squidpants

    Version: Batch XLSX to XLS Converter 2010.2.1211.1314

    Pros

    It opened.

    Cons

    I received an Excel 2007.xlsx with 100,000 records. It didn't convert properly, it basically just did what opening the file in Excel 2003 does, it cuts off any record after 65k.

    Summary

    If you have the same version of Excel that you want to convert, then it's fine. Otherwise it's pointless.

    "Trail version works as expected"

    September 20, 2010   |   By rleathers

    Version: Batch XLSX to XLS Converter 2010.2.913.1278

    Pros

    Simple. Converted files as expected.

    Cons

    Trail version appears to only convert one file at a time if picking multiple files. However, process a whole folder full of files and it works great.

    Summary

    Good tool for conversion of XLSX to XLS. Very simple interface. Didn't really look at any of the advanced features because it did exactly what I needed out of the box.
