What is an XLSX file?

An XLSX file is a spreadsheet created with Microsoft Excel, a program used to create spreadsheets. It stores data in worksheets, which contain cells arranged in a grid of rows and columns. It may also contain charts, mathematical functions, styles, and formatting. The file is commonly used to store financial data and to create simple or complex mathematical models.

More Information

Each cell in an XLSX spreadsheet may be formatted individually. For example, cells may have a number, text, currency, or other format as well as color, border style, custom font, and size. Cells may reference other cells to compute a resulting value.

XLSX files are created using the Open XML standard, which was introduced in Microsoft Office 2007. They are stored as a compressed Zip archive, which contains a collection of individual files. The archive includes the file [Content_Types].xml, which describes the spreadsheet, and an XML file for each worksheet within the spreadsheet.

NOTE: XLSX files can be opened in Excel 2007 or later. They are also backwards compatible with earlier versions of Excel via Open XML component support.
