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 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.

Numbers Spreadsheet File

File extension .numbers
File category documents
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.
