Using jxl to pump data from excel to my database.
Prob is that source .xls is 2.1 version which is not recognized by jxl library., and I have to covert it manualy.

Is there any library outhere just for converting xls formats ?

Or any other suggestion how to do import with some other stuff.

I'm not sure what the "2.1" means, but give Apache POI a try - it is more actively maintained than JXL, and can handle XLSX files in addition to XLS.
