📌 .XL belongs to the subcategory of alternate extensions exploited and opened up by Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Particularly, this technical standard includes various data organized in columns and rows and represented to the user in the form of tabular layout in the scope of Excel suite. Besides, .XL structures can be opened and exported as text files, .TSV or .CSV entities from the Excel shell. After all, Excel resources are usually distinguished by common .XLS format specified to the appropriate spreadsheet instances in the ordinary way. Therefore, it occurs quite rarely when Excel items are marked with .XL format definition.
📌 The .XL file container is unsupported by actual editions of Excel suite. Hereby, it is not possible to uncover the .XL file object contents in up-to-date branches of the office package. However, the .XL file schema is still compatible with Android and iOS-based distributives of the Excel solution, available for download and exploitation within Google Play and App Market stores correspondingly. If you are willing to open up the file entry contents within desktop-oriented Windows or macOS platforms, it is required to preconfigure the former version of the program (up to 2003 and earlier) in order to be able to explore the .XL container structure, adjust file markup, make relevant modifications or generate fresh macros.
