Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .

Convert Protected XPS to XLSM via C#

If your XPS 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 XPS File to XLSM with Watermark via C#

While converting XPS 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 XPS File Format?

XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.

The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.

XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.

To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.

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.
