but gnumeric can read .xls files fine, where's the advantage in the
The gnumeric format btw is just ascii text compressed with gzip and
according to the manual is actually xml . . . so logically if you could
convert the xls spreadsheet to xml and then compress it with gzip you would
have yourself a .gnumeric file. Wait a sec, I say a function before for
converting a recordset to xml. hmmm, sorry just typing out loud.

Subject: [ILUG] batching gnumeric (or gnome office stuff in general..)
Anyone know if I can convert between fileformats, with starting up a GUI ?
Simple stuff, like twenty .xls files, that I want as gnumeric format...
