    Default convert TDMS files to XLS or XLSX

    I am currently using Excel 2010 on Windows 7 and running a temperature/voltage/current measurement test at my work using NI test equipment that outputs data in .TDMS file format. This format can be opened using excel. I have a macro that applies a formula to all workbooks in a folder and has been proven to work on .xls and .xlsx file formats. I am able to open up each .tdms manually and save them as .xls/.xlsx format but this will be very tedious because I will have hundreds of files to work with. I am looking to find a macro that will convert all of these .tdms to .xls or for help on why a mass macro won't work on .tdms files. Any help will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

    Sample TDMS files can be downloaded here:

    TDM Excel Add-In (add-in to open .tdm/.tdms files) can be downloaded here:

    Thanks for the help Tinbendr. That link that you directed me to is to be able to convert from TDMS to XLSX inside of LabView itself not in Excel. Unfortunately in order for me to implement the conversion that way I would have to stop the LabView test program which I cannot do. I was able to convert the TDMS file using a combination of the TDM excel add in and the save as command in a macro. Thanks again!
