How to Convert ODS to XLSX in C# .Net Framework

File format conversion is definitely few people’s cup of tea. That being said, its complex implementation can actually be circumvented if you know the right tricks. Today we will be covering just such a method, one that will have you able to start converting your ODS files into XLSX format in no time flat.

Our first step is package installation via NuGet. You can use this command for that:

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert -Version 3.2.8

Following our installation, we can write out our function call. Just follow this example for the details.

using System;using System.Diagnostics;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Api;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Client;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Model;namespace Example{public class ConvertDocumentOdsToXlsxExample{public void main(){// Configure API key authorization: ApikeyConfiguration.Default.AddApiKey("Apikey", "YOUR_API_KEY");// Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed// Configuration.Default.AddApiKeyPrefix("Apikey", "Bearer");var apiInstance = new ConvertDocumentApi();var inputFile = new System.IO.Stream(); // System.IO.Stream | Input file to perform the operation on.try{// Convert ODS Spreadsheet to XLSXbyte[] result = apiInstance.ConvertDocumentOdsToXlsx(inputFile);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling ConvertDocumentApi.ConvertDocumentOdsToXlsx: " + e.Message );}}}}

And done! Talk about easy.
