What is a .XLS file?

xls file icon

Microsoft Excel is typically used to create .XLS files, but the files may also be exported by other applications, such as OpenOffice Calc, LibreOffice Calc, and Apple Numbers. XLS files are used to store data in worksheets, along with charts, graphs, and mathematical functions. The spreadsheets may be used for various purposes, including quarterly financial reports, family spending budgets, or contact lists.

XLS files were commonly used to save spreadsheets in the 1990s and 2000s. However, they have been largely replaced by XLSX files since the release of Microsoft Excel 2007. Although XLS files are not as common you may still receive XLS files attached to emails from co-workers or friends. Or you may find old XLS files on your computer that you need to update. File Viewer Plus is a great option for opening, modifying, and saving your XLS files.
