    This 'Right Click Excel to CSV' Shell menu might also help:

    Thank you very much, I've been doing this quite some time, and I made this tool to help me, but what meant here is made the layer manager compatible with excel so to do all work together, like copy, paste, and saving to excel xlsx files without limitation.

    load excel_layer_list

    Items headers in excel had to be in this order
    Name, Description, Color, Linetype, Lineweight

    the commands
    1- layersimport, to import layer from excel xlsx, xls, and csv.
    2- layersexport export to csv file.

    Note *remove layer 0 from the exported list*
