.ret File Extension

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

what is a .ret file?

The BusinessObjects Template file is stored in the RET format and is affixed with the RET extension, and is used by BusinessObjects. These RET files are generally classified as data files that contain new report templates and components such as report settings and pre-defined queries. These templates may be included in the software or created. It is important to note that before creating a template there should be a report that serves as a model. They can be opened by choosing "Select a template" in the New Report Wizard and saving the template would create the RET file extension. The New Report Wizard offers a dialog box that enables viewing and selecting the chosen template. The default template is named "default.ret and the default location for templates is My Documents\My BusinessObjectsDocuments\Templates folder in the desktop. The SAP BusinessObjects software can be used in Microsoft Windows based systems to access and read RET files.

a word of warning

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