Excel Archival Tool (UMN)

Available as a download from GitHub, this tool allows for the conversion of proprietary Excel files into open source formats. The tool extracts raw spreadsheet data into CSV files, charts and figures into PNG images, cell formula as plain text, and cell formatting and style information as an HTML snapshot. The result is a folder structure capturing applicable data types found in the original spreadsheet - the csv files, charts and figures, formulas, and visual representation


More information is provide in the Poster for Excel Archival Tools: Automating the Spreadsheet Conversion Process.  http://conservancy.umn.edu/handle/11299/171966
