OpenDocument Spreadsheet

File extension .ods
File category documents
Description The OpenDocument Spreadsheet (ODS) file system was developed by the Oracle Corporation as an escape from the numerous proprietary spreadsheet applications available in the software market. Since it is open-sourced, free that is, and XML-based – meaning it is a file format supported on webpages. In more recent years, the ODS format is used for storing and fetching data on internet databases. The major merit is that it supports not only spreadsheets, but added features like charts, and graphical contents similar to those found on Microsoft Excel.
Technical details Since files are based on the XML format of data processing, which earns it a first place as the spreadsheet, charts, and word processing format on webpages. The HTML and ODF formats are both XML-based, which explains their compatibility. The OpenDocument Format (ODF) is an open-source standard developed by the Organisation for the Advancement of Structural Information Standard (OASIS). The first release of OASIS’ ODF was in May 2005. ODF supports the representation of files as subdocuments; these come with file extensions like .odt and .fodt – OpenDocument Text, .odp and .fodp – OpenDocument Presentation, .ods and .fods – OpenDocument Spreadsheet, .odg and .fodg – OpenDocument Graphics.

Microsoft Excel Binary File Format

File extension .xls
File category documents
Description XLS – is a spreadsheet created by a popular Microsoft Excel application. It includes document data that is located in cells that have a specific address. They can contain formulas, mathematical equations that are associated with information in other cells, and fixed information. It is often used for the development of graphs and charts. The format allows to store and edit a large range of parameters - images, tables, macros, types, diagrams. It has been widely used until the appearance of the 2007 version of Excel, and then it was replaced with the XMLSS extension. The information inside the XLS document is contained in a series of static-size streams, their location is described using several segment distribution tables. It differs in backwards compatibility and supports various file formats created for DOS. It is often used by web browsers to exclude the use of binary formats. The utility is included in the Microsoft office suite and, in addition to Excel, can be opened by various applications like Apache Open Office, Libre Office, adapted to Mac OS, Windows or Linux.
Technical details The relevance of the format is explained by its simplicity, although it does not support separate functions, for example, storing VBA macros. Until XMLSS appeared, the Excel application used the Biff extension when formatting, which was created on the basis of the IFF container format. Due to this, changes to the book templates and their contents were available. After the introduction of the new format in 2007, the program has not lost the backward compatible properties, which guarantees the wide distribution of XLS in the future. Subsequently, the XLS extension was replaced by the XLSM, XLSB and XLSX formats.
