If I convert an excel spreadsheet containing hundreds of sheets in the workbook to text file format is that the same as ASCII code? Also, is there a way to convert the whole workbook or do I have to do each page one at a time?

    You may be able to save all of them if you write a macro. The normal save as will not do multiple sheets in a text format (MS-DOS). What is the purpose of converting the file? There may be other means that will work better. Possibly convert it to a PDF or other file format.

    Mostly probably 'yes', but there's no way for us to know without first knowing everything contained in the spreadsheet.

    Also, no, it's not "the same". Since we know nothing about the platform or OS version, for all we know, the spreadsheet might already exist as "ASCII code" without being "ASCII text".

    But training for Excel isn't a function of this forum. If you attempt an action and encounter errors, we can help explain the errors and provide help on fixing them.

    To give a solid explanation of why "ASCII code" and "ASCII text" can and can't or might and might not be "the same" would requite for too long of an answer.

    Just Save As a text file (perhaps as a .CSV), and that's about as good as it's likely to get.
