How to Convert ICS to Excel

ICS is the file extension used when sharing calendar files from the Google Calendar, Sunbird and iCal programs. Of course, there are other programs that provide calendars such as Microsoft Outlook or even Yahoo!. If you want to distribute your ICS file in an Excel format to recipients that don't have the Google calendar, iCal or Sunbird calendar program, you can convert it through Excel itself. Once you convert it, you can distribute the ICS file in a spreadsheet format.
