Note on Using This Tool
The library that ExcelPeek relies on to interface with a spreadsheet, openpyxl, requires that files be in the “.xlsx” format. For 99% of use-cases, all this means is that if the file is another type of Excel file (“.xls”, “.xlsb”, “.xlsm”, etc.), then all one needs to do is open the file in something like LibreOffice Calc (DO NOT open the file in Excel on a Windows-based system!!!) and save the file as type “.xlsx”. This will still keep any macros intact and allow an investigation to be undertaken.
