File extension RBF, RSD, SDB, and SQLITE are associated with a variety of different file types one of which is a database file. Considering the fact that such files are used with database applications and can consist of a variety of different types of data, including text, numerical data, mathematical calculations, formulas etc, Avanquest recently published the recommendations on the software to open RBF, RSD, SDB, and SQLITE files associated with a database file type.
File extension RBF is a database file type which is created by mapping software known as RETADAM which stands for Retrieval of Data for Small Areas by Microcomputer. This type of database file contains structured data which is used to analyze geographical information such as survey and census data.
File extension RSD stores structured data which uses a programming language that assists in the operation of an SQL (Structured Query Language) database. The program codes and scripts allow users of an SQL database to access data using specific commands. This type of database file is used in conjunction with a database application known as REALbasic.
File extension SDB consists of varied structured data depending upon the specific database application it is associated with. SDB files can be related to SQL (Structured Query Language), proprietary data base applications, or open source database programs such as those included in OpenOffice.
File extension SQLITE is a database file type which is part of a library which works with SQL database applications. The data which is stored in an SQLITE file is organized into tables and fields which are accessed using Structured Query Language commands set up using a programming language. File extension SQLITE is designed to be used with the SQLite database application and can be opened with other software applications which are SQLite compatible.
File extension RBF, RSD, SDB, and SQLITE Software
Database file types can be proprietary and accessible using a specific software application or they can be versatile and compatible with numerous database programs. The following software applications can be used to open RBF, RSD, SDB, and SQLITE files.
RETADAM: CELADE RETADAM is a data base mapping software application which can be used to open file extension RBF. CELADE is known as the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean and offers technical assistance, information, training, and research on the population in various geographic regions of Latin America and the Caribbean. RETADAM can be downloaded at no cost on the Eclac.org website and is designed for use with the Windows operating system.
REALbasic 5: REALbasic 5 is a database software development application which will open file extension RSD. REALbasic is used in conjunction with REALStudio which is a programming environment for database management and development. File extension RSD can be loaded into the REALbasic application using commands to access folders and files. REALbasic 5 is available for download on the Real Software website and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and the Linux operating system.
OpenOffice: OpenOffice is an open source suite of productivity applications and includes a database application which will open file extension SDB. Although the SDB file extension has since been changed to the ODB file extension, OpenOffice is backwards compatible and will open SDB files. OpenOffice is available on the OpenOffice.org website and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and the Linux operating system.
MonKey Office: ProSaldo MonKey Office is a suite of office productivity applications which can be used to open file extension SDB provided the file was created with this software application. MonKey Office provides a German accounting database which is cross platform and compatible with the Windows operating system and Mac OS X. MonKey Office can be downloaded as an unpaid trial on the Softango website.
ServerBoss: File extension SDB can be opened using ServerBoss which is a database management application by Integrated Data Processing that provides a way to set up commands and server authorization rules. ServerBoss is available on the ServerBoss website and is designed for use with the Windows operating system.
SQLite: SQLite is a software application which stores a library of data which assists developers with building an SQL (Structured Query Language) database engine. SQLite will open file extension SQLITE and is used for application file formats, mobile device access, website databases, and as a substitute for enterprise RDBMS (Relational Database Management System.) SQLite can be obtained for download on the SQLite.org website and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and the Linux operating system.
AutoCAD Map 3D: File extension SQLITE can be opened using AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 which is a mapping software application that offers access to Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Geographic Information System (GIS) data. The application is used for accurate decision making and will open SQLITE files using the Windows operating system. AudtoCAD Map 3D is available in a paid version on the Autodesk Store website.
MapGuide: MapGuide Open Source can be used to open file extension SQLITE and is a web-based platform which provides tools for developing web mapping applications and geospatial services. MapGuide Open Source is compatible with Windows and the Linux operating system.
These are a few of the software applications recommended by Avanquest to open RBF, RSD, SDB, and SQLITE file extensions. For the files that are not proprietary, Avanquest recommends additional software applications which are compatible with database file types.
