Running windows 7.

I have a bunch of csv files that I need to convert to xlsx files.

All of the fileswould be in one folder.   Running Excel 2007.

Any suggestions for such a utility?

    Here they are playing with powershell to open csv and save as xlsx:

    Hmmm.  Thanks thehagman, I'm no programmer but it looks like something.

    Also it would be nice that after it does the converting it opens all the resulting excel files in Excel (in multiple windows, of course).  

    ut is that asking too much for a utility?
