Opening SDF files

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

What is a SDF file?

SDF is an acronym for Standard Database Format. Files that contain the .sdf file extension normally contain standard database files that store data in a structured file format.

These SDF files are often used to transfer data between different database applications. This allows a user who has created a database in one software program to share the database information with another user who may not have the same software product installed on his or her computer.

The Soundweb software application also uses the .sdf file suffix. These SDF files contain designer files that have been created in the Soundweb 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.
