.ffd File Extension

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

what is a .ffd file?

The .ffd file extension is used by a lot of programs. This file format is also developed and used by Contivo for their VMS application. The .ffd file extension is also a flat file descriptor, and this utility is implemented in IBM WebSphere DataPower. Whether these files are used with hardware or software, it is possible to convert .ffd files into the XML format. These applications can also be used to open files with the .ffd extension, and compatibility support for computers that run on widely used versions of Microsoft Windows is integrated into these programs.

how to open a .ffd file?

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

Microsoft Notepad

Microsoft Notepad

Notepad is a basic text editor used to create plain documents. It is commonly used to view or edit text (.txt) files, and a simple tool for creating Web pages, and supports only the basic formatting in HTML documents. It also has a simple built-in logging function. Each time a file that initializes with .log is opened, the program inserts a text timestamp on the last line of the file. It accepts text from the Windows clipboard. This is helpful in stripping embedded font type and style codes from formatted text, such as when copying text from a Web page and pasting into an email message or other “What You See Is What You Get” text editor. The formatted text is temporarily pasted into Notepad, and then immediately copied again in stripped format to be pasted into the other program. Simple text editors like Notepad may be utilized to change text with markup, such as HTML. Early versions of Notepad offered only the most basic functions, such as finding text. Newer versions of Windows include an updated version of Notepad with a search and replace function (Ctrl + H), as well as Ctrl + F for search and similar keyboard shortcuts. It makes use of a built-in window class named edit. In older versions such as Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me and Windows 3.1, there is a 64k limit on the size of the file being edited, an operating system limit of the EDIT class.

a word of warning

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