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 XLTM File Format?
The XLTM file format, also known as an Excel Macro-Enabled Template file, is a file format used in Microsoft Office Excel to store spreadsheet templates that contain macros. Introduced in Excel 2007, this file format is based on the Microsoft Excel Open XML Format Spreadsheet.
XLTM files serve as a convenient way to save macros written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) within a spreadsheet. Macros are sets of instructions that automate tasks in Excel. Similar to the XLSM file format, XLTM files can store macros; however, they have an additional feature: the ability to be used as templates for other Excel files.
When an XLTM template is used to create a new workbook, the macros from the template are copied into the new file. This allows users to execute the macros within the newly created workbook. This feature is particularly useful for creating reusable templates. For example, a template could be designed with macros that generate a monthly report. By using the XLTM template each month, a new workbook is created with the macros automatically generating the report based on the data in the workbook.
XLTM files are also valuable for sharing macros with others. A user can create a template with macros, such as a report generation template, and then send it via email to another user. The recipient can open the template in Excel and utilize the macros to generate the desired report.
