Within my company many automatically generated information products / reports are in the xlsb format. I pickup these files and use them as the starting point for my workflows. Currently i have to manually open these files and save them in the xlsx or xls format before i can read them into the file reader because the xls reader does not support the xlsb format. However the more reports i created this method starts to take up a lot of time and i am looking for a way around this.
Does anybody know of a way to read xlsb files into Knime (or R if that is easier).
Help would be much appreciated!
