How to Convert a TCX to an XLS

By Alizarin Black

TCX is a type of XML file containing fitness data, such as lap time, calories, sport, distance and other data. TCX files are used to transfer this fitness data to Garmin products, such as a Garmin GPS device and Garmin Training Center. An XLS file is a spreadsheet created in Microsoft Excel that stores data. People often use XLS files to create graphs or charts or to edit data from the spreadsheet. You can convert a TCX to an XLS to open and view the content of the TCX file in spreadsheet form.
