XLS and XLSX are the two file extensions used by Microsoft Excel. Microsoft Excel 2003 documents are XLS while the 2007 edition works with XLSX format.

Even if both formats belong to the same company you may have some trouble opening XLS files with the 2007 suite and XLSX data with the 2003 build. To avoid such a situation you can use Batch XLSX To XLS Converter.
