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.

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.

Ana Suárez

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.

Sabina Calis

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.

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.

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.
