Is there a way to automate convert multiple excel files from XLSX to CSV?

I am trying to automate our process of converting Excel Spreadsheets into CSVs so they can be uploaded to Fivetran. I have been able to make copies and bring them into the subfolder I need, but I can't figure out the best way to create CSV tables from each new excel file I bring into the folder. It seems that I would have to convert the Excel files to a list in SharePoint first, but I haven't been successful at that either. Any help or advice to lead me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

Hi!

Excel files already stored in a SP library? No need to convert them to a SP list as soon as th relevant info is stored as table format.

'List rows present in a table' and 'Create CSV table' should do the magic.

Hope this helps

Ok Im just realizing all the worksheets have data that isn't within a "Table". Guess I'll just do that manually, thanks anyway.
