converts any data file to Microsoft Excel. Byteboy is a tool that's able to convert any kind of source file to a Microsoft Excel sheet. Typical sources are client or commodity data files which have been generated by older database programs running on MS-DOS operating systems. In the past, table calculation or database programs did not correctly convert such files. This application recognizes data types such as text, decimals, binary-integers, binary IEEE-realnumber and BCD-numbers and converts them to a Microsoft Excel file format, as long as the source file has data stored in byte fields of equivalent length.
