Opening WDB files

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

What is a WDB file?

Files that contain the .wdb file extension are most commonly associated with the Microsoft Works database software application. The files with the .wdb extension contain database files that have been created with the Microsoft Works database application.

The WDB files are similar to the MDB files that are created by the Microsoft Access database software, but the WDB files have more limitations and are not as versatile as the Access files.

The World of Warcraft computer game also uses the .wdb file suffix. World of Warcraft is a popular MMORPG online computer game. The WDB files that are used by this program contain cache files that are created by the program during a user's game play.

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.
