.sam File Extension

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

what is a .sam file?

The AMI extension was originally used in files with text content entered using Ami Pro, an old application developed by Samna. This program is a word processing application for Microsoft Windows-based systems, and it was among the first word processing programs that offered a GUI (Graphical User Interface) at that time. IBM then acquired Api Pro in the late 1980s to improve and transform it into a more efficient word processing application for Microsoft Windows, and Lotus Word Pro was born in 1988. Files with the .sam extension can be opened and viewed using IBM Lotus Word Pro, and Microsoft Word 2010 can also be used to do this, though the Microsoft Office Converter Pack should be installed. Much like RTF and other recent text document formats, files with the SAM extension can store and display text content with custom formatting attributes and page layout characteristics.

how to open a .sam file?

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

When Lotus Development Corporation was acquired by IBM, they replaced Ami Pro with Lotus Word Pro. Ami Pro was incapable of displaying the top part of the next page and the bottom part of the other page simultaneously which is one of the limitations that brought about the rewriting of the whole program. One of Ami Pro’s notable capabilities is the capacity of it to control formatting in an easy manner using various paragraph styles. Ami Pro’s distribution was later on discontinued.

a word of warning

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