What is an SLK file?

An SLK file is a file saved in the Symbolic Link (SYLK) format created by Microsoft to transfer data between spreadsheet programs and other databases. It contains lines of text delimited by semi-colons that specify the cell row, column, formatting, and content. SLK files are stored in an ANSI text format.

More Information

NOTE: SLK file may also be saved as .SYLK files but they are less common than SLK files.
