Convert Microsoft Excel 97 to 2003 workbook to Open Document Interchange Format (ODIF).

We have found one software suitable in our database for this conversion.

ODIF is a rare format from 80s and 90s and not well-supported in modern programs which means any odf conversion will be difficult nowadays. Still some office productivity suites claim to support it and might allow you to save documents to that format, but the chances are actually very slim.

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.
