I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!

I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.

Used it for over a year to convert my bank statements to csv files. Great quick app, increased my productivity a lot. Also, amazing support - always helped me quickly!

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.

A very useful and professional site. The service is easy to use and the administrators are helpful and courteous.

David Shelton

It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.

I use Zamar whenever I need to convert audio and video files from multiple submitters to 1 uniform file format for Audio and Video Editing. I can do multiple large files in a short amount of time.

Christopher Bee

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

I feel like Zamzar is an active team member, especially for projects that I work on where I am the workhorse and it saves so much time and frustration. I am spoiled with Zamzar, because they have set the bar for file conversion and customer service very high.

Deborah Herman

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

ODS Document Format

ODS Converter

ODS files go by the full name of OpenDocument Spreadsheet files and were originally developed by Oracle. ODS files are like any other spreadsheet in that they are a grid of rows and columns and can have charts, shapes, hyperlinks and data added to them, as well as allowing users to enter formulas to automate more complex calculations. ODS files are free and open sourced, and an alternative to Microsoft’s Excel or Apple’s Numbers formats.

Open-source office software suites that include file types such as ODS are popular because they’re free and almost any program is able to open their files. So, increasingly, people are downloading programs like LibreOffice, which has a version of Word (Writer), Excel (Calc) and PowerPoint (Impress), is easy to use, and whose files can even be opened using Microsoft Office applications. The ODS file is the default file type for LibreOffice’s Calc program.

XLS Document Format

XLS Converter

The XLS format, also known as the Excel Binary File Format, is the format for spreadsheet files created by Microsoft or other spreadsheet programs. XLS files contain one or more worksheets that are made up of cells that are arranged by row and by column, and they allow users to do calculations by inserting formulas into cells. XLS files also support charts, images, pivot tables and more, and this means that they are often the format of choice for anyone doing any form of calculation or working with numerical data. This file format also allows users to create and record macros using a macro-programming language called Visual Basic.

XLS files are widely used in education and in work, although in 2007 they were replaced by the XLSX file format as the primary file type used for Excel spreadsheets.

Users can open XLS files with either Office for Windows or Office for Mac, and both these programs support features, including macros that have been written in Visual Basic. While applications like OpenOffice allow XLS files to be opened, some features may be limited. XLS files can also be opened on Android or iOS.

Frequently asked questions

If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.

You can change an ODS file to XLS using an online conversion service like Zamzar, or with spreadsheet applications like OpenOffice Calc or Microsoft Excel. With Zamzar’s web-based converter, you can upload your ODS file and download your converted XLS file in seconds. The service is free, easy to use and you won’t need to download any software.

If you have access to a spreadsheet application, then you could also open your ODS file with that software, and then export it as an XLS file. With some applications, however, this may alter the formatting of the file.

You can open an ODS file in Excel either by opening it directly in Microsoft Excel, or by first converting it to XLS format using a conversion tool such as Zamzar. To open the file directly with Excel, open the application and then click ‘File’, then ‘Open’, and select your ODS file from the location you’ve saved it to on your computer. Your file will then open in Excel, but may lose some formatting.
Alternatively, use Zamzar to first convert your file to XLS format. Simply upload your file, select your ‘Convert To’ option, and download the converted file. You’ll then be able to open that XLS file in Excel.

You can open an OpenOffice spreadsheet in Excel either directly or by first converting the file to XLS format using a conversion tool. To open your OpenOffice spreadsheet directly in Excel, launch the software and click ‘File’, ‘Open’, and then browse your device for the ODS file you want to open. Note that the opened file may have lost some of the original formatting.
Another option is to use Zamzar to first convert your file to XLS format, and then open this in Excel. Zamzar’s online conversion tool lets you convert your file easily and for free in three quick steps.

You can open an ODS file using programmes such as Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets or LibreOffice, or by converting it to a more accessible format using a conversion tool like Zamzar. To use Google Sheets, first upload your ODS file to Google Drive. Once uploaded, right-click the ODS file and select ‘Open with Google Sheets’.

For another online solution, you can use Zamzar’s web-based conversion tool to convert your file from ODS to Excel or another format, such as PDF, and then open that file on your device.

You can easily convert your OpenOffice spreadsheet using an online converter like the one on Zamzar’s website. With Zamzar’s free conversion tool, you can upload your ODS file, select XLS or XLSX as the format you’d like to convert to, and then download the converted file to your device.

Alternatively, you could open your OpenOffice spreadsheet in Excel, and then save it as an XLS file. You may lose some formatting this way, though, and you would need to manually open and save each file individually.
