Converts CSV files into XLS, XLSX, DBF, XML, HTML, SQL and more formats, featuring basic and advanced output configuration options

Advanced CSV Converter is a simple-to-use application developed to help you convert CSV files into other formats, such as DBF, TXT, HTML, XML, XLS, SQL and RTF. It features some advanced settings that can be easily figured out.

Fast setup and wizard-like GUI


Its installation is over quickly. As far as the interface is concerned, Advanced CSV Converter opts for a wizard-like structure, where you can get started by pointing out the CSV file along with the output directory, file name and format.

Configure output settings


It is possible to preview content within the main frame, specify the CSV delimiter (comma, tab, semicolon or other), write a header in the first line, enable the OEM character set, sort lines in ascending or descending order, skip duplicates, as well as ask the app to open the target file on task completion and to analyze it before conversion.
Advanced users may handpick the exact columns to convert and set the width, add new columns, load filters from external files, as well as input command lines to further enhance functionality.

Evaluation and conclusion


The app carries out conversion jobs quickly while remaining light on system resources. We have not come across any issues in our tests, since it did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Although it is not particularly attractive, Advanced CSV Converter gets the job done and comprises a surprisingly rich set of advanced features.
