The File Conversion package enables developers to convert files between multiple formats for ease of modification, the distribution/storage of read-only file formats, or for compatibility requirements of other dependent applications.

Example use cases include:
-Converting a CSV to an xlsx format for in order to read/modify the file using the Excel Advanced package.
-Converting an XLSX to a CSV in situations where Microsoft Excel doesn't exist on the bot runner and data access/manipulations are required.
-Converting/preparing image file formats for intelligent document processing through IQ bot or similar document OCR applications.

Supported file formats include jpeg, jpg, gif, png, tiff, PDF, docx, xlsx, pptx, CSV, and html.

NOTE: Converting files (especially complex data files like XSLX/CSV) is not always a perfect science. This package is consuming 3rd party open-source libraries in order to perform the provided conversions. Please make sure that your files are well tested before heavily relying on this package for production conversions. If you run into issues with a particular file not converting as expected, you're encouraged to take a look at the GitHub repo for this project in order to self-support/debug your issue or head to the A-People forums. There is no support for this package outside of Community Support available on our A-People forums.
