Can I directly convert .dat files to .xls format.
Users attempting to directly convert .dat files to Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets (.dat to .xls conversion) are most likely searching for ways to import data to MS Excel in order to generate spreadsheets.
There are numerous file types using the .dat suffix. It is, therefore, extremely difficult to give you specific details on a .dat to .xls conversion.
You can always try using MS Excel's manual data import function if you are certain that your .dat file contains some type of structured data. In that case, it might be possible to load that data, and export it as .xls format.
