Information about XLSM and XLS file formats

Name XLSM XLS
Full name XLSM, Excel Open XML Macro-Enabled Spreadsheet XLS - Microsoft Excel Binary File Format
File extension .xlsm .xls
MIME type application/vnd.ms-excel
Developed by Microsoft Microsoft
Type of format Spreadsheet Spreadsheet
Description XLSM is the file extension that is assigned to spreadsheets created by Microsoft Excel 2007 and newer. They are saved using the Open XML standard. Just like an older version of the Excel spreadsheet, XLSM files can contain tables and worksheets. On top, XLSM files are macro-enabled. They can contain embedded macros that use VBA. 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".
Technical details As stated above, XLSM files are macro-enabled. This distinguishes the format from XLSX files that Microsoft Excel also creates. Thus, for Excel to execute the macros embedded in the file, the spreadsheet has to be saved in the XSLM format rather than as an XLSX file. Predecessors of Microsoft Excel 2007 are only able to open XLSM files if they support Open XML components. OpenOffice.org has created documentation of the Excel format. Since then, Microsoft has made the Excel binary format specification available to download freely.
