The purpose of this work is to write a code that translates files in ascii -typical in data banks with a large number of files- to Excel, a versatile electronic spreadsheet for recording and representing columns of data used to carry out simple calculations, and present graphics by many users, from high school students to professional researchers. To provide a didactic explanation of our work, a concrete example is used to explain (demonstrate) the code translator; data is taken from hundreds of meteorological stations in Bolivia and converted to Excel using C language and dialect XML.
