 Converting Excel XLA file to XLS file using VBA

I need to convert an XLA file an employee made a while ago to an XLS to
make some modifications.

Know when to let go of what was... and be certain that your focus is always on
the moment... and that your plans only concern the future.
Not the past.

You can deny all the things I have seen, all the things that I have discovered,
but not for much longer.  Cuz too many others know whats happening out there,
and no one has jurisdiction over the truth.

Hi Cyrus,

I am the author of XLAtoXLS which decompiles XLA Add-Ins to the VBA
XLS source workbook.

There are two flavours available:

Version 1 is itself an XLA but can be defeated by protection on the
sheets and workbook.

Version 2 is a complete rewrite in C/C++ and compiled into an XLL. It
can overcome password protection, but is only available in 16-bit
(i.e. Excel 5) format for the moment.

You can download demo versions of XLAtoXLS from:

or (v1) (v2)
        (or any Winsite mirror)

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
