Several .XSL Excel files consolidated into a master location

Hi All,


Recently picked up Power Automate due to a work-based requirement.


I have an automatic report every day sent to my email (365 Business) that contains 2 attachments. The attachments are coming in a .XLS format and the data is a list of jobs that have happened in the previous 24 hours. I need to update a master location with a sum of each spreadsheets jobs to build up the visibility of how many jobs are coming in each day.


I've been searching the forums/google and a lot of the solutions require trial/demo licenses or a paid service. I can't seem to find a free way to convert .XLS into .XLSX so that the plugins for Excel work; likewise with Sharepoint lists.


I'm hoping someone can push me in the right direction.


Thanks in advance,
