Excel Spreadsheet .XLS, .XLSM, and .XLSX Files


The XLS filter imports and exports tabular data from Microsoft Excel spreadsheet files.


File Description

Unlike the other spreadsheet file formats supported by Voxler, the Excel file format allows multiple pages or "worksheets" in a single Excel file. When you import an Excel file containing multiple worksheets, you are given the option to select which worksheet(s) to import.
