.dif File Extension

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

what is a .dif file?

Data interchange format files are used in applications integrated with functionalities for importing and exporting standard output files into different formats. The DIF format was developed by Microsoft, and these files are appended with the .dif extension. Spreadsheet exporting and formatting specifications are implemented into the DIF format as a standard in exporting spreadsheet files developed by Microsoft Windows programs into other supported file formats. The Microsoft Excel 2010 spreadsheet application and the Microsoft Access 2010 database management software are implemented with support for opening and editing the content of these DIF files. Mac users can use the Microsoft Excel 2011 software to access the content stored in these DIF files. The content of a DIF file includes structured text data encoded with XML-based specifications and saved in plain text, and these pieces of structured data are divided into data field sets and tables. The OpenOffice.org software can be used to open and view the content of these DIF files, and there are versions of the OpenOffice.org application for Microsoft Windows platforms, Mac systems and Unix-based computers.

how to open a .dif file?

Launch a .dif 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 .dif file will open it.

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers and services, released by Microsoft on August 1, 1989 for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Originally, the first version of Microsoft Office contained Microsoft Word, a word processor and was previously considered the main program in Office; Microsoft Excel, a spreadsheet program that originally competed with the dominant Lotus 1-2-3; and Microsoft PowerPoint, a popular presentation program for Windows and Mac.; a marketing term for a bundled set of applications. As years passed by, Office applications have grown significantly closer with shared features such as a common spell checker, Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) data integration and Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications scripting language. Microsoft also positions Office as a development platform for line-of-business software under the Office Business Applications brand. The current versions are Office 2010 for Windows, released on June 15, 2010; and Office 2011 for Mac OS X, released October 26, 2010.The new Office 2013 (version 15 of the Office suite) is reported to be released around December 2012.

a word of warning

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