|Description||OpenOffice Spreadsheet is the default file type for the OpenOffice application called Calc. OpenOffice is a free suite of productivity tools which has been hailed as viable alternative to Microsoft Office. By allowing users to open and even save in Excel format, OpenOffice Calc is often used to overcome incompatibility issues. Calc features common spreadsheet functionality such as formulas, wizards, formatting and styles. Calc can be installed on all popular operating systems including Windows, OX, Linux and Solaris.|

|Technical Details||The OpenOffice Spreadsheet file format was developed by the OASIS industry consortium. Files are saved and compressed using ZIP compression which generally makes the file size smaller than the equivalent file created by Microsoft Excel and saved as a XLS file. Usually the file will consist of an XML file, directories and thumbnails. By utilising an open source compression technique, it is often possible to repair partially corrupted files. It is also possible for advanced users to edit the rate of compression, therefore achieving higher compression ratios.|
