Using Aspose.Total for .NET you can easily convert TEX file to ODS within any .NET, C#, ASP.NET and VB.NET applications. Firstly, by using Aspose.PDF for .NET , you can export TEX to XLSX. After that, by using Aspose.Cells for .NET Spreadsheet Programming API, you can convert XLSX to ODS.
.NET API to Convert TEX 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 TEX to ODS via C#
If your TEX 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 TEX File to ODS with Watermark via C#
While converting TEX 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 TEX File Format?
The TeX file format is a typesetting system developed by Donald Knuth in the late 1970s. It is widely used in academia, particularly in the fields of mathematics, physics, and computer science, for creating professional-looking documents with complex mathematical formulas and symbols. TeX files are plain text files that contain a mixture of text and formatting commands.
TeX provides a powerful and flexible way to produce high-quality documents. It allows precise control over the layout and formatting of the document, including fonts, spacing, line breaks, page breaks, and mathematical equations. TeX uses a macro language that enables users to define their own commands and create custom styles and templates.
TeX files are typically processed by a TeX engine, such as pdfTeX or XeTeX, which reads the input file, interprets the formatting commands, and generates a typeset document in a variety of output formats, such as PDF, DVI, or PostScript. The typesetting process involves multiple passes, where the engine analyzes the document, resolves cross-references, and adjusts the layout to ensure optimal spacing and line breaks.
TeX is known for its exceptional typesetting quality and its ability to handle complex mathematical notation. It is widely used in academic publications, research papers, books, and technical documentation. The TeX format supports various extensions, such as LaTeX, which provides higher-level commands and document classes for easier document authoring.
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.
