How to Batch Convert CSV to XLS

You can save your data sets in the form of a CSV (Comma-Separated Values) format file. If you have too many CSV files and you are planning to convert them to XLS format, then you should go for batch conversion, rather than converting them one by one.

The process of converting a batch of CSV format files to XLS is really easy, provided that you are using the right software program to do so. There are different software programs available on the internet, which allow their users to upload the whole batch at one time and convert them to XLS in just one click.
