Convert ODS to XLS in C# .NET

Leverage the power of .NET REST API and seamlessly integrate ODS to Excel conversion into your .NET applications. Please follow the instructions given below to accomplish the OSD to XLS workbook conversion in C# .NET.

CellsApi cellsInstance = new CellsApi(clientID, clientSecret);

Create an object of CellsApi class where we pass client credentials as arguments.

 cellsInstance.UploadFile("input.ods", inputFile);

Read the ODS file and upload it to the cloud storage.

var response = cellsInstance.CellsWorkbookGetWorkbook(first_Excel,null, format: "XLS", isAutoFit: true, null, null, null, "resultant.xls", null,null);

Initiate ODS file to Excel workbook conversion. After conversion, the resultant XLS is stored in the cloud storage.

The input ODS file and the resultant Excel workbook generated in the above example can be downloaded from:

Convert ODF to Excel Workbook using cURL Commands

The integration of Aspose.Cells Cloud with cURL provides a versatile and scalable solution to convert ODS file to Excel online. By employing cURL commands to interact with the Aspose.Cells Cloud API, you can initiate the conversion process in the cloud effortlessly. This approach not only simplifies the conversion but also ensures accuracy and preserves data integrity.

The first step in this approach is to generate a JWT access token using the following command:

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/connect/token" \
 -X POST \
 -d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=921363a8-b195-426c-85f7-7d458b112383&client_secret=2bf81fca2f3ca1790e405c904b94d233" \
 -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
 -H "Accept: application/json"

Once we have uploaded the input ODS to cloud storage, we need to execute the following command to convert ODS file to Excel format. After successful operation, the resultant file is uploaded to the cloud storage.

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/cells/{inputFile}?format=XLS&isAutoFit=true&onlySaveTable=false&outPath={resultantFile}&checkExcelRestriction=true&pageWideFitOnPerSheet=true&pageTallFitOnPerSheet=true" \
-X GET \
-H  "accept: application/json" \
-H  "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}"

Replace inputFile with the name of input ODS file, resultantFile with the name of resultant Excel workbook and accessToken with a JWT access token generated above.

  • If there is a requirement to save the resultant Excel workbook on local drive, then please try executing the following command.
curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/cells/input.ods?format=XLS&isAutoFit=true&onlySaveTable=false&checkExcelRestriction=true&pageWideFitOnPerSheet=true&pageTallFitOnPerSheet=true" \
-X GET \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {JWTToken}" \
-o "myFinal.xls"


In conclusion, the journey to convert OpenDocument Spreadsheet (ODS) files to Excel workbooks unfolds through two powerful approaches, each catering to distinct developer needs. Therefore, through the .NET REST API or Aspose.Cells Cloud with cURL commands, you can seamlessly achieve ODS to Excel conversion while unlocking advanced capabilities for comprehensive data manipulation. Nonetheless, Aspose.Cells stands as a pivotal tool, not merely for fulfilling conversion requirements but as a gateway to elevate data processing, making it an indispensable asset for developers navigating the complexities of modern data management.
