XLSX - Microsoft Excel Open XML Spreadsheet

What is a XLSX file

XLSX is a type of spreadsheet file format created and used by Microsoft Excel, a widely-used software application for processing spreadsheets and performing complex calculations. It allows users to organize, calculate, analyze, and visualize data in a tabular format with various features such as formulas, formatting, and charts.

XLSX files are part of the XML-based file format introduced in the 2007 version of Microsoft Office suite, and have since become the standard for Excel files.

One of the key advantages of XLSX files is that they allow for improved file and data management as well as easier data recovery. This is because XML-based files can be easily accessed and worked with by any XML supporting application, not just Microsoft Excel. Since the data in XLSX files is stored as plain text, security concerns when sending these files over the internet have been reduced.

OCR can be used to extract data from scanned or image-based documents, such as invoices, receipts, or forms, and convert them into editable and searchable text that can be stored in XLSX format.

With its versatility and compatibility with various applications, XLSX is an excellent choice for storing and managing spreadsheet data.
