Scott, FWIW, I'm 73 years old. But I've been in electronics and computers for a living since 1951, so I usually know where the ropes are. Frank was a bit brusk maybe, but 100% correct.

Bear in mind also this is an all volunteer list, and the polite thing to do when you reply is to say thank you. Something that I in fact forget all too often, and I try to blame it on CRS, but that is a very poor excuse and I know it. My apologies to the list for those lapses in decorum. Oh, and I'm not the oldest 'senior citizen' here, not by about a decade IIRC.

Having said that:
Hi how do you open a db file
That depends entirely on what created your "db file".  A moment of Google
search tells me that it could be a file created by Filemaker Pro or
Access.  If it's "thumbs.db" then that's a file of thumbnail graphics used
Windows Explorer.

It could also be an Ansys database, an Arcview Object Database file,
or something created by Synopsys Design Compiler, dbVista, Paradox,

There are about 17 other programs that apparently create a "db file", plus
ghawd-knows how many others that aren't on the list that I'm looking at.

So.... What created it?
