The Data Interchange Format (DIF) file format is a text based format encoded in ASCII with a header, for integrity checking, and a body. The format was originally developed by Software Arts in order to transfer data from VisiCalc, the first spreadsheet.
|Name:||Data Interchange Format|
|Import / Export:||Both|
Since the DIF format only supports a single worksheet, Gnumeric only exports the top worksheet in the view used to save the workbook.
Supported by the “Data Interchange Format (DIF) module” plug-in.
The format is a text file, encoded in ASCII, with a header and body.
The file can be processed as a text file or imported to any program that recognizes the DIF format.
