How to Convert XLS to WPS Files thumbnail
Convert your document formats.

Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program used to create anything from financial tracking to work schedules. The default format used in Excel is XLS (for versions of Excel made up to 1995). WPS is the file format for Microsoft Works, a word processor that has now been replaced by the standard Microsoft Word software. If you are running the older Microsoft Excel and need to convert the format to WPS, there is a file converter available off the Internet.

      Click "Save As" and the document saves as the new format. Because the document is rather small compared to other file formats, the conversion only takes a few minutes to complete. Once finished, you can open the new WPS file in Microsoft Works.
