I have a bunch of older Microsoft Excel files (some even Excel 97) that I need format into the new version. Is that remotely possible? I tried Apache POI but that didn't work. Thanks!

Depending on the number of file you could open them in the newer version of Excel and the do a SAVE AS and select the newer format that saves it in the newer XLSX  format
