Excel xlsx files

I am trying to use the excel spreadsheets to text feature and it works great for xls files but doesn't seem to work for xlsx files. Is there something different that I need to do?

I am using this to basically mimic saving a file as CSV in excel and using the CSV file to process.

Thanks,

Re: Help with multiple line items

Thanks! Unfortunately won't load in my latest version 8.6.1. I got some of these working and would like feedback if it is either an okay way to do it or not.

Re: Help with multiple line items

Thanks! I'm not sure I understand the script yet but I'll dig a bit deeper. In the same vein, I have something like this that I need to figure out and not sure if the script will help as well but here it goes: From: Colour, Red A,1 A,2 A,3 A,4 Colour, Blue A,1 A,2 A,3 Colour, Green A,1 A,2 A,3 A,4 A...

Re: Help with multiple line items

Sorry to bring this up but is it possible to get a text output of that script contained in the zip file. I have to use an older version so I just need to get an idea of how the perl expressions were used.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Help with multiple line items

Yikes, I can't read this as I'm using an older version, 8.1.1. Is it possible to send me the text of the script? And many thanks for helping. Got another question about my example though: In Payment 1, I can use a Exact search/replace by using [capture(csvfield)],[capture(csvfield)] to capture the f...

PO Box Patterns

I need help with PO Box searches. Any combination of P.O. Box, PO BOX, P O Box, etc... I tried some perl patterns I found on the internet and they don't work in Textpipe so maybe there's a better Easy Pattern method. What I'm trying to do is look at an address field and if I see any mention of post ...
