I want to automatically convert Excel files (.xls, .xlsx) to OpenDocument spreadsheets (.ods)

Is there a PHP library for that?

Or at least a command-line utility that I could call from PHP?

  • .odf is for mathematical equations; probably you meant .ods? – Snowball May 26 '14 at 4:59
  • @Snowball: Yes thanks! Fixed. – Nicolas Raoul May 26 '14 at 5:00
  • I was going to suggest PHPExcel since I've used that for reading a few spreadsheet types but I just checked and it can't write to OpenDocument only read. – Nick Wilde May 26 '14 at 6:37

unoconv does this.

exec('unoconv -f ods -o output.ods input.xlsx');
