Opening DB3 files

Did your computer fail to open a DB3 file? We explain what DB3 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your DB3 files.

What is a DB3 file?

Files that contain the .db3 file extension are most commonly associated with the SQLite database application.

SQLite creates databases using plain files and allows for the storage and retrieval of structured data using the SQL programming language. The database files that are created with the SQLite software application are saved with the .db3 file extension.

The dBASE III database application also uses the .db3 file suffix. These files are also database files, but instead of being created with the SQLite software, they are created with the dBASE III software.

The S.T.A.L.K.E.R gaming software also uses the .db3 file extension for game files that are referenced by the gaming application.

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.
