.NET API to Convert PS to ODS
Get Started with .NET File Automation APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Convert Protected PS to ODS via C#
If your PS document is password protected, you cannot convert it to ODS without the password. Using the API, you can first open the protected document using a valid password and convert it after it. In order to open the encrypted file, you can initialize a new instance of the Document class and pass the filename and password as arguments.
Convert PS File to ODS with Watermark via C#
While converting PS file to ODS, you can also add watermark to your output ODS file format. In order to add a watermark, you can create a new Workbook object and open the converted XLSX document, select Worksheet via its index, create a Shape and use its AddTextEffect function. After that you can save your XLSX document as ODS with Watermark.

What is PS File Format?
The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.
PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.
The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.
PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.
While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.
What is ODS File Format?
The OpenDocument Spreadsheet (ODS) format is specifically designed for storing spreadsheet data and is commonly used by open source office suites like Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice. ODS files utilize the OpenDocument XML format and are identified by the .ods file extension.
In an ODS file, data can be organized and stored within cells, allowing for efficient tabular representation. Cells can be formatted using various styles to enhance the visual appearance and readability. Additionally, ODS files can incorporate charts and other graphical elements to present data in a visually appealing manner.
One notable advantage of ODS files is their smaller file size compared to similar spreadsheet formats such as Microsoft Excel’s .xlsx format. This compactness facilitates easier file sharing, as smaller files are quicker to transfer and require less storage space.
ODS files offer compatibility and interoperability across multiple office suites and spreadsheet applications. They can be opened and edited in various software programs, ensuring flexibility in working with spreadsheet data. Furthermore, many applications support exporting data to the ODS format, enabling seamless data exchange between different software platforms.
The ODS format’s open nature and widespread support make it a practical choice for sharing and collaborating on spreadsheet data, promoting data portability and facilitating efficient workflows across different software applications.
