The OpenDocument Format (ODF) is an open cross-platform file format for office documents (text documents, spreadsheets, drawings, presentations and more), developed at OASIS, an independent, international standards group. Open means that any developer can learn its details and create an application that can read and write this format. ODF is a native file format for OpenOffice.org 2.0+, StarOffice 8+, IBM Workplace, AbiWord, KOffice 1.5+ and many other applications (MS Office can also read and write it).


In addition to being an OASIS standard, it is published as an ISO/IEC international standard, ISO/IEC 26300:2006 Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.0.


ODF is being adopted by many governments worldwide as a required file format for publishing and accepting documents.


Our OpenDocument parser is designed to convert OpenDocument's documents to text or extract any other necessary data and can handle the following document extentions:

  • .odt for word processing (text) documents;
  • .ods for spreadsheets;
  • .odp for presentations;
