It would be helpful to automatically convert old Excel formats to new ones using MS Flow, when they arrive by mail.
Same here, would need this to use an email-received XLS file in a Power BI report.
need it 🙂
You can convert XLS to XSLX, DOC to DOCX, PPT to PPTX using actions from Plumsail Documents connector:
Please review this article. It describes how it works.
Converting CSV's to XLXS too!
WITH A PAID SOLUTION !!! FROM 3RD PARTY CONNECTOR
Would love to see this implemented.
Anyway all the excel actions are very limited eg. you can't create a workbook directly from flow.
But we can check tons of paid 3rd parties solutions in flow doing it.

The technology required for this project is too difficult for Microsoft, so it took two years to meet people's expectations.
This is a need for us due to business data limitations with 3rd party solutions in power automate. So frustrating that it hasn’t been fixed yet
when can we expect something here?
Can someone at least acknowledge if this will be done at a future date. If not I need to rethink a bunch of our Reporting processes as I'm wasting hours manually converting files.
