|Description||🔵 The WKS file format is an outdated file format for spreadsheets used by Lotus 1-2-3 software. It was first introduced in 1982 and was widely used during the 1980s and early 1990s before being replaced by the more advanced Lotus 1-2-3 file formats such as .123.|
|Technical details||🔵 WKS files are binary files that contain spreadsheet data, including text, numbers, formulas, and formatting. They have a file header that contains information about the file's format and settings, followed by a series of records that describe the contents of each cell in the spreadsheet. The file format uses a proprietary binary format and is not widely supported by modern spreadsheet applications. Each record in a WKS file contains information about a single cell in the spreadsheet, including its row and column location, data type, and value. The data types supported by the WKS file format include text, numbers, dates, and formulas. The format also supports basic formatting options such as font size, bold and italic styles, and cell borders.|

|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 associated with the information in other cells, and fixed information. It is often used for the development of graphs and charts. The format allows us to store and edit a broad 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 backward 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 format's relevance 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, created based on the IFF container format. Due to this, changes to the book templates and their contents were available. After introducing 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.|
