Opening DAP files

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

What is a DAP file?

The .dap file extension is given to files that have been created with the Microsoft Access database application. The Access application uses the DAP files to create web pages that are directly connected to an Access database. These files can then be used to distribute reports via the Internet, for data entry functions or to generate interactive Web-based reports.

The .dap file extension is also given to files that have been downloaded by the SpeedBit Download Accelerator software. Incomplete files that are being downloaded by the accelerator will be given the .dap extension during download and if the download is interrupted. Once the download has been completed, the file will be renamed with the proper file extension.

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.
