    convert a .xls text file to a Valid Excel file

    Is it possible for me to convert a .xls text file to a Valid Excel file through code?
    I am using a text file with .xls extension which is basically a download from SAP.It does look like an Excel file. But it is not a valid excel file and it would let me connect to it using a connection string only after I open it manually in Excel and do a "save as " .
    Can I do this process through code?
