What is a FODS file?
Spreadsheet saved in the OpenDocument format, but stored as a flat XML file instead of the .ZIP container used by .ODS files; allows the spreadsheet information to be more human readable; also can be an easier alternative than the ODS format for generating spreadsheets automatically without needing a spreadsheet editor.
The FODS format is not supported by spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel and Corel Quattro Pro.
