I am attempting to convert a tab separated csv into an xls file using unoconv. However, the tabs are not being recognized as the field separator. Can someone please tell me how this can be done.

I've tried:

unoconv -i 09,,system,1 -f xls original.csv

and I get the following error:

Warning: Option 09,,system,1 cannot be parsed, ignoring.

You are missing FilterOptions. I think the correct command is:

unoconv -i FilterOptions=09,,system,1 -f xls original.csv
