Information about XLS and DBF file formats
|Full name||XLS - Microsoft Excel Binary File Format||Database File|
|Type of format||Spreadsheet||Database|
|Description||Microsoft Excel up until 2007 version used a proprietary binary file format called Excel Binary File Format (.XLS) as its primary format. Excel 2007 uses Office Open XML as its primary file format, an XML-based format that followed after a previous XML-based format called "XML Spreadsheet".||The database management software dBASE used the DBF extension to save its standard database files. Due to the file format's popularity, dBASE is not the only database program that supports DBF files. Other "xBASE" applications support the file format as well. This popularity is based on the easy to comprehend structure and the fact that DBF was one of the earliest files of its type that was adapted by the database community.|
|Technical details||OpenOffice.org has created documentation of the Excel format. Since then Microsoft made the Excel binary format specification available to freely download.||The contents of a DBF file comprises of multiple sets data that are organized and stored in arrays. As a file format, DBF has been introduced in dBASE II. It has been used in the proceeding versions of dBASE III, III+ and IV. DBF files were one of the first database files with a header that allows programs that do not natively have knowledge of the data structure in a specific file, to read DBF files regardless. Thus, they can be opened in Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc, and many other programs.|
