Hi!
Is it possible to build a flow to convert all files in an onedrive folder from old XLS to XLSX?
If yes, please describe in which steps, or include a print screen please.
Thanks!

Hi @leofromrio ,

 

If you don't want to use UI flow, you could take a try to create a flow to create a new XLSX file with file content from the XLS file.

Hi @leofromrio , perhaps you could try the UI Flow template below. It will require a minor modification

I need this to be part of an automated flow, so I guess UI won't work.

@v-alzhan-msft Your suggestion doesn't work, simply reads as a corrupted file.

This does not work and is not a solution. This should be basic functionality offered by Microsoft. Why is no one addressing this in the multiple threads about it??? Very frustrating

Hello,

 

I have tried with the above solution... creating a flow that create new file with extension .XLSX and get file content from .XLS but still it is showing the file is corrupted and cant be open.
