How to Convert VCF to XLS

By Matthew Burley

VCF files contain information that can be structured in the same way as an XLS Excel spreadsheet, but VCF files must be converted to an Excel-compatible file format before being viewed in Excel. This file conversion can either be accomplished through an online file conversion site or by downloading a utility to your computer. The file output from the conversion can be opened in Excel so that you can edit or manipulate the data contained within the file.
