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 stands for OpenDocument Spreadsheet file. This file format was developed by OASIS, and the files are created within a spreadsheet program called Calc. Like other spreadsheet formats, ODS enables you to sort and save data into tables, cells and rows. It can be used to track projects, manage budgets, generate complex mathematical formulae and charts, and has the ability to format custom elements including text and fonts, background colour, rows and columns. Additionally, ODS files are able to store macros, which allow users to automate complex tasks like data formatting and calculations.
The ODS format is an alternative to Microsoft’s Excel or Apple’s Number spreadsheet formats, and ODS files can be created for free using the Apache OpenOffice or LibreOffice open-source software, which both include the Calc application. Due to the popularity and non-proprietary use of the ODS format, these files can be opened with many spreadsheet program, such as LibreOffice, OpenOffice, Microsoft Excel, and Google Sheets.
