Hi @npower - Haven’t worked with xslb files and there doesn’t seems to be much information available on this. May be check this below post and see if it is helpful

@npower I guess this is because XLSB are stored in Binary format, which increases compression, whereas XLSX files are stored in XML format which is used for structuring the data.

Thank you very much! It’s a sad reality, but I’m glad that it wasn’t my approach, thank you for your time and help!
