As I use OpenOffice on Windows 7 for manually making the work that follows, maybe that an OpenOffice Guru can find a better solution than a Perl script, so I've added also OpenOffice in the topics

I'm searching for a good solution for converting Windows xlsx/xls files (Windows 1252 WinLatin 1) in csv (UTF-8) files with a script like:


my environment is Windows 7 with ActiveState Perl 5.24.0

The script should also "cut-off" the first line & the first column of every Excel spreadsheet

Thanks a lot,
