Import to excel spreadsheet from an OpenDocument ODS file

Is XlsIO able to open an OpenDocument Spreadsheet file (.ods) as an Excel spreadsheet?

I found documentation for converting from excel to ods, but this would be going the other way and it doesn't appear to be one of the xlsIO.ExcelOpenType options/isn't handled by the automatic open type.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Matt, 

Greetings from Syncfusion. 

Sorry, you can’t open ODS documents using XlsIO as it doesn’t support to read.

Are you going to support ODS?  More and more goverment departments are pushing ODS for document exchange, with some mandated to use it for all future projects.

Hi Matt, 
We have logged a feature report as Support for parsing ODS documents. But, we do not have any immediate plans to implement this feature in near future. You can track the status of the feature report through the following feedback link.
