Aspose.Total for .NET is a comprehensive suite of .NET components that enables developers to easily create, manipulate and convert various file formats within any .NET, C#, ASP.NET and VB.NET applications. It provides a wide range of features and capabilities, including the ability to convert a PostScript (PS) file to an Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook (XLSM) file.
The process of converting a PS file to XLSM involves two steps. Firstly, using Aspose.PDF for .NET, you can export the PS file to an Excel Open XML Spreadsheet (XLSX) file. This is done by using the Document.Save method, which allows you to save the document in a variety of formats, including XLSX.
Once the PS file has been converted to XLSX, you can then use Aspose.Cells for .NET to convert the XLSX file to XLSM. Aspose.Cells for .NET is a powerful spreadsheet programming API that enables developers to create, manipulate and convert spreadsheets in a variety of formats, including XLSM. It provides a wide range of features and capabilities, including the ability to convert XLSX to XLSM.
Using Aspose.Total for .NET, you can easily convert a PS file to XLSM within any .NET, C#, ASP.NET and VB.NET applications. The process involves two steps: exporting the PS file to XLSX using Aspose.PDF for .NET, and then converting the XLSX file to XLSM using Aspose.Cells for .NET. Both components are included in the Aspose.Total for .NET suite, making it easy to convert PS to XLSM within any .NET application.
.NET API to Convert PS to XLSM
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 XLSM via C#
If your PS document is password protected, you cannot convert it to XLSM 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 XLSM with Watermark via C#
While converting PS file to XLSM, you can also add watermark to your output XLSM 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 XLSM 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 XLSM File Format?
The XLSM file format is another file format used by Microsoft Excel, and it stands for Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook. Similar to XLSB, XLSM files offer additional functionality and capabilities compared to the standard XLSX format.
XLSM files are designed to store spreadsheet data that includes macros. Macros are small programs or scripts that automate tasks within Excel. With the XLSM format, users can create, edit, and execute macros directly within the workbook. This makes XLSM files particularly useful for automating repetitive tasks, performing complex calculations, or creating customized functions.
By enabling macros, XLSM files allow users to enhance the functionality of their spreadsheets. Macros can be written using the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language, providing a powerful tool for customization and automation within Excel.
One of the main advantages of the XLSM format is its ability to store and execute macros seamlessly. When an XLSM file is opened, Excel enables the macros contained within the file, allowing users to utilize the automation and customization features provided by the macros.
However, it’s important to note that due to potential security risks, some Excel versions may prompt users to enable or disable macros when opening an XLSM file. This is done to protect against potentially malicious macros that could harm the system or compromise data.
