    Any ideas on  if there is an object on blue prism that can convert an excel file to a data file (from  .csv to  .dat ) or how to go about this in a blueprism process

    Not sure about the object but you can use the Move File action of File Management utility to rename from .CSV to .DAT

    The concept of a .DAT file is considered rather generic. In other words, there's no standard related to what a .DAT file contains or what it's structure should look like. The contents and structure are governed by whatever application created/uses the .DAT file. So you need to determine what the target application expects, in terms of the .DAT file, and then you can work on converting the .CSV.

    As @Kirtish Trivedi mentioned, it could be as easy as just changing the file extension, or it could involve needing to perform a significant reorganization of the data contained in the .CSV.
