Hey Experts,

I'm working with Census datasets with over 1 million rows.  The datasets are in Excel format.  I need to convert from Excel to .csv so I can work with them using MySQL.

I do not want to open the Excel file and do a Save As because when I do it ruins the data beyond 1 million rows.  How can I  convert from Excel to .csv without having to open the Excel file?
