I am working on a vbscript that will open the excel file and re-save it as a .xlsx file. The reason why I am doing this because the file is very large and saving it as a .xlsx reduces the sizes tremendously. My code works does create the file but when I try to open it I get an error saying that the converter failed. I am thinking that I am not giving excel enough time to open the .xls file(3,151) KB. It takes about 20 seconds before it will open. Is there a way to make sure the file is open before the re-save. My code is attached.
