The Open Document spreadsheet filename extension format is an alternative open source spreadsheet file format and is part of the larger OpenDocument family of open source file formats. The format is associated with documents where tabular or spreadsheet information is represented. Several proprietary and open source applications are compatible with the format, allowing for interoperability between software systems that support the OpenDocument format. Proprietary applications such as in Microsoft Office Excel 2007 and above can open .ods files however certain proprietary features in Microsoft Office Excel may not be compatible with the format. Other open source spreadsheet applications (such as OpenOffice) support the .ods filename extension in its entirety.
