Data Interchange Format (.dif)

DIF, or Data Interchange Format, is a text file format used for importing and exporting single spreadsheets between different spreadsheet programs. It is a standardized format that is widely supported by a variety of applications, including Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc.

DIF files are stored in ASCII text and can be viewed and edited with a text editor. However, one limitation of the DIF format is that it cannot handle multiple spreadsheets in a single workbook. Despite this limitation, the DIF format remains popular due to its simplicity and wide support among different applications.
