WKS Document Format WKS Converter
WKS is the format that was used with the now-discontinued Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet software. In the 1980s and early 1990s, before Microsoft Excel overtook it in use, Lotus 1-2-3 was probably the most popular spreadsheet program. The software was widely used in both homes and offices. Like Excel formats, WKS stores data in cells in grids and rows, and you could use Lotus 1-2-3 to calculate formulas and create charts.
Lotus was sold to IBM and the final version of Lotus 1-2-3 was released in 2002, with support ending in 2013. Because it used to be such a common format, you can still open WKS files in many spreadsheet programs. These include Excel 2003 and earlier, Corel QuattroPro and OpenOffice Calc. However, many users prefer to convert WKS files into Excel or CSV, as the format and software have since been discontinued.
XLS Document Format XLS Converter
The XLS file format was developed by Microsoft for its Excel spreadsheet program. XLS is a binary spreadsheet format that can include cell data and formulas, as well as charts and macros. Excel is one of the most popular software programs for recording, organising, calculating and analysing data. It’s often used for budgeting and reporting.
Microsoft introduced the new XLSX format for Excel in 2007, to replace XLS. However, you can still open XLS files in newer versions of Excel, as well as saving XLSX files into this older format. Excel is part of Microsoft’s Office suite, which is available as a one-off software purchase or an Office 365 subscription. Other spreadsheet programs that can usually open XLS files include Google Sheets, Apple Numbers and LibreOffice Calc.
