Numbers Spreadsheet File

Extension.numbers
Category🔵 documents
Programs
🔵 Apple Numbers
Main program🔵 Apple iWork
Description🔵 Files with the .numbers extension can only be created in the Apple Mac Numbers spreadsheet program. The Number program is to the Mac OS X iWork suite what Microsoft Excel is to the Windows Office Suite. The Numbers program allows users to create spreadsheets, tables, and use advanced formulas to calculate data values. NUMBERS spreadsheets can also contain graphs, tables, images, and other media types. Numbers files are quite similar to Microsoft Excel files in many wise, but they cannot be opened in Excel or LibreOffice Calc due to their proprietary and different structures.
Technical details🔵 A .number file is a compressed ZIP file comprised of several other different filetypes combined to make a NUMBERS file. The type of constituent files found in a .numbers file is dependent on the media type represented in the spreadsheet. Apple Inc.'s latest release of the Numbers program saves spreadsheets with a file folder containing the proprietary IWA format, .plist files, and .jpg screenshots that allow users to preview the document. Like other proprietary Office programs like Microsoft Office, the .numbers spreadsheet file type suffers from a lack of compatibility with other popular spreadsheet programs.

Main program🔵 Microsoft Office
Description🔵 .xls The .xls format is the default file format for spreadsheets created in Microsoft Excel, particularly in versions before Excel 007. This binary file format can store data in cells organized in rows and columns, and it supports formulas, charts, graphs, and various formatting features to manipulate and visualize dataThe .xls format was commonly used in business, finance, and any field requiring data analysis and presentation but has since been largely replaced by the more advanced .xlsx format.
Technical details🔵 The `.xls` format, primarily for Microsoft Excel versions before 2007, stores spreadsheet elements like worksheets, formulas, and macros. As a proprietary binary format by Microsoft, its undocumented internal structure made third-party software compatibility challenging. This format includes binary records encapsulating data, formatting, and embedded objects, supporting multiple worksheets, various functions, and inter-sheet referencing. `.xls` files may contain Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros, enabling automation and complex calculations. It's supported not just in Excel but also in applications like OpenOffice Calc, with options to convert between `.xls` and other formats like `.xlsx`. Despite security concerns with macros, `.xls` is still used, mainly for its compatibility with older Excel versions and legacy systems, although the newer `.xlsx` format, introduced in Office 2007 with XML and ZIP technologies, offers improved efficiency and security.
