Biff stands for Binary Interchange File Format and was the standard for MS Excel files up to version Office 2003 (extension xls). Ooxml is the object oriented xml structured language that is currently used for MS Excel files (extension xlsx).

You cannot load an xls file with the ooxml addition, and in the same way you can't load an xlsx file with the addition biff.
