Hi !

Juste to ask if there is a way to read xls (excel) file without OLE (com object) ?

my goal is to convert content to other file format ( csv, xml, etc...)

exemple, i need to convert all .xls file in the directory to csv file format with pipe "|" as delimiter character

Why do you want to avoid excel COM?

You could use _ExcelReadSheetToArray and then write the Array to a file.

Edit: If you don't have excel installed you could use one of the freeware excel converters like xls2csv

because I have no excel installed.

good freeware but not flexible because it add a double comma ("") for each cell content

You can manipulate the csv file and remove the double comma afterwords.
