Hey leslie663


Do you know what the purpose of this .DBF is and what software did you previously use to open it?

DBF files were originally used in dBase II and continued through to dBase Version IV. The DBF file format originated by Ashton-Tate, but is understood by Act!, Clipper,FoxPro, Arago, Wordtech, xBase, and similar database or database-related products. DBF files can also be opened by Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access.


Do you have any of these applications installed on your computer?
