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.
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.
