While both .xla and .xlsb files come from MS Excel, a direct conversion of these files is unlikely, simply because .xla files are not spreadsheets, but add-ins. These files are sort of add-ons or plugins that add new functionality to Excel. You can apply those new things to spreadsheets, but not directly convert xla to xlsb on file conversion basis.

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.
