Opening ACCDT files

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

What is an ACCDT file?

Files that contain the .accdt file extension are most commonly used by the Microsoft Access database application. The ACCDT files contain template files that are used within the Microsoft Access software.

The template files that are utilized by Microsoft Access allow a user to create database files with the same formatting without the need to re-create each individual file from scratch. The ACCDT template files are saved in a compressed archive of XML and text files, allowing a user to access the pre-saved template with a single click.

Each Access template that a user creates and saves is saved with the .accdt file suffix.

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.
