Ubuntu – Convert .csv file to .ods using terminal


Is it possible convert .csv files to .ods files using command line? I have a lot archives to convert and I don't want convert them one by one.

Best Answer

I used the LibreOffice commandline to convert a sample csv file:

soffice --convert-to ods koko.csv --headless

So to use it in a batch command would be

for i in "$1"/*; do soffice --convert-to ods "$i" --headless; done

Usage: ./converter.sh /path/to/folder
