.dap File Extension

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

what is a .dap file?

Pages of websites associated to Microsoft Access databases are called Access data Access page files. These files are stored in the DAP format and are affixed with the .dap extension. Classified as Web files, the content of these DAP files may include forms or multimedia materials that can be used by viewers of the Web page to enter details, which may in turn be generated as reports. These reports are then stored in the associated Microsoft Access databases for distribution to other users. Users who can access the content of these reports and materials are given privileges by the administrators of those Web pages with embedded DAP functionalities. Microsoft developed the DAP format, and users of Microsoft Windows-based systems can install and use the Microsoft Access 2010 software to create, open and edit the content of these DAP files. Data found in supported spreadsheet files or content encoded in plain text formats can also be used to create these DAP files.

how to open a .dap file?

Launch a .dap 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 .dap 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 .dap files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dap file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dap file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

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