Convert Microsoft Word or Excel documents to Google Documents

I am trying to convert Microsoft documents that have already been uploaded to a Google Shared drive to their appropriate Google document. From what I can read this should be possible without having to download the file in and reupload it. I am not as familiar with API so hoping someone can help me understand the documentation. What I have currently has been returning a 404 error.


You cannot convert it directly. however, you can use the Upload a file module and Choose which Google File format you want to convert your file while uploading.

So in your case, the ideal way is to use two modules, 1. Download a file and then 2 Upload it with conversion.

Ok, I knew I could do it that way. I thought what I was reading in the API I could do with with a direct API call without downloading it. Trying to save my storage limit in Make.
