This step converts an Excel file (on the app server) and makes a copy to CSV format. 


  • inputFilePath--Path for the file on the App server
  • outputFilePath-- Path for the file to be saved on the App server



  • True – step executed successfully
  • False – step failed to execute






Let’s build and execute the “convertExcelToCSVDef” example.        

  • Create a new definition called “convertExcelToCSVDef” 
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag a “convertExcelToCSV” step to the canvas
  • Connect the dots between the start and “convertExcelToCSV” step
  • Click on the “convertExcelToCSV” step to configure its “Settings” properties. Provide a name to the step. Provide the source path to excel file (on the app server). Provide the target path (on the app server) to store the CSV file. 
  • The “Logging” setting configuration is necessary for documentation and also measure the workflow progress and the percent complete. This is acheived by configuring the step state and percent fields individually as shown in the images below. Configure the “Logging” using the following properties.
  • Save the process definition. Create a new process instance and execute. The process step should convert the Excel file to CSV file format in the path, as configured.
