Opening FMT files

Did your computer fail to open a FMT file? We explain what FMT files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your FMT files.

What is a FMT file?

Files that contain the .fmt file extension are most commonly associated with the FoxPro data-centric programming language.

The FMT files that are associated with FoxPro specify data formats that are used by the language and are used to validate data that has been entered into associated FoxPro tables.

The Microsoft Schedule+ software application has also been known to use the .fmt file suffix. These FMT files contain print files that are to be printed from the Schedule+ software.

The Sandisk Sansa portable media player also uses the .fmt file extension. These FMT files are format files that are used by the Sansa for playback of audio recordings.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
