.chn File Extension

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

what is a .chn file?

Files in the CHN format are data files developed by Qualis Research Associates for their Ethnograph software. These files are affixed with the .chn extension and are also specifically called Ethnograph data files. Qualitative data research is commonly referred to as ethnography, and a wide variety of computer programs have been developed to provide data researchers, scientists, medical professionals and engineers with more convenient and helpful features for conducting qualitative data research and analysis. Older versions of the Ethnograph software reference the data stored in these CHN files when required to implement a set of features integrated into the program as requested by the user, and in particular, these functionalities are features built into this software for data analysis. Other applications developed for similar qualitative data research and analysis can be connected to compatible external devices and machines attached to a Microsoft Windows-based system. Users can install the Ethnograph software from Qualis Research Associates to implement support into their Microsoft Windows-based systems for these CHN files.

how to open a .chn file?

Launch a .chn file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .chn file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .chn files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .chn file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .chn file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .chn 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, .chn. 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.
