Need to identify database

Need to identify database

Need to identify database

Does anyone know what type of database produces files with the extensions .MIF .MXF and .MDF?  (or any ODBC driver that can connect with such files)


RE: Need to identify database

thanks for trying.

No, foxdev, these are not SQL 7 files, they are not like a data "container" file, but more like loose tables and indexes.

and no, snyderj, these are definitely not "human-readable ASCII text files"

of course, I'm still stumped

RE: Need to identify database


You win a vote for tip master...now for the hard part.  Do you know whether BW uses a proprietary data engine? Is there an ODBC driver for this?

RE: Need to identify database

Alas, the Access driver is one of the many I have already tried without success.

RE: Need to identify database

Did you try getting in touch with the tech team for BW?
