There is also a perl module that converts excel files to .csv on CPAN. 
It works fine for everything I've ever used it for, which is really 
simple stuff, i.e. no cells defined by functions.

steps involved:
1. go to www.cpan.org and find the package, download it
2. ensure you have the necessary setup to do things with perl, otherwise 
set them up
3. install the package
4. use it as the perl script instructs (i.e. <scriptname> --help or 
something similar)
