Is it possible to search for text inside xlsb files?

Post by *dmocha » 2019-01-29, 12:30 UTC

I have a lot of files with extension .xlsb.
Does anyone of you use the option to search for text inside such files?
I know how to preview a single file, e.g. using a ulister plugin, but I need something to search multiple files at once.

Yes, I know the basic differences between the xlsx and xlsb format, e.g. xlsb vs xlsx the pros and cons of xlsb files.

Or, maybe some kind of external tool, like DocFetcher (unfortunately, it is also unable to index xlsb content)?

No, Total Commander can only search old xls files and Office xml files (xlsx). xlsb is a proprietary binary format.

Agent Ransack can do this. You can create a TC button to search current Folder.
