.afp File Extension

Developer: IBM
File type: Advanced Function Presentation File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .afp. Files with the file extension .afp can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .afp files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .afp file?

An advanced function presentation file is used by many document presentation applications that were developed by IBM. These advanced function presentation files are usually implemented into text and word processing programs as master template files. This means the content of an advanced function presentation file may consist of blocks of text, text formatting specifications, page layout attributes, embedded digital objects and visual elements along with other template data corresponding to certain sections of a presentation document. These configurations, settings and content can be applied unto many new and old presentation documents by implementing these advanced function presentation master template files into these new and old presentation documents. The content of an advanced function presentation file is integrated with binary, text and XML-based formatting specifications that are used to store its content in the AFP file format. These advanced function presentation master template files are appended with the .afp extension, and the RasterMaster program can also be used to open and view as well as manipulate the content of these advanced function presentation files.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .afp files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .afp. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
