Opening XFDL files

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

What is a XFDL file?

XFDL is an acronym for Extensible Forms Description Language. Files that contain the .xfdl file extension are commonly used to store standardized and interchangeable business forms.

Files that contain the .xfdl file suffix store the form layout, digital signatures, business transaction details and other business form information of the associated business form. They are commonly used by government agencies and businesses in many e-commerce transactions and in legally-binding contracts.

The form information that is contained in the XFDL file is encoded using the XML format. Users can customize certain fields of the XDFL file in order to suit their specific business needs.

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.
