Files that contain the .sam file extension are most commonly associated with word processing documents that have been created by the Samna Ami Pro word processing application.
Samna Ami Pro was purchased by Lotus, which was later purchased by IBM. The current version of the Ami Pro software is called IBM Lotus Word Pro 9.8.
The .sam file extension is also used for some of the files used by the MS Office 97 software. These SAM files contain converter files that are used by the software application.
The CalTech PaleoMag software application has also been reported to use the .sam file suffix. This program uses the .sam file extension for the data files that are used by the software.
