A .dat file is a "data" file and can be one of several formats.
Do you know what program was used to make these .dat files, or the basic
content of them?
You can try this as well, to get an idea of the format of your .dat files.
- Go to Start, Programs, Accessories and then click on Notepad
- In Notepad, go to File then click on Open
- In the "Files of type:" menu, select "All Files"
- Go to where you saved the .dat file in question and click it open
At this point, you might be able to see the format of the file, that is,
if it is a text file, perhaps fields (first name, last name) separated
by commas or tabs, etc.
If you can figure out the format of your .dat file, or even "cut and
paste" a part of it to here (no personal information, please) then I can
better advise you what program you would need to properly view or work
with the file. Thanks!
