Opening ODB files

Have a problem opening a .ODB file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what ODB files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .ODB file type?

The .odb file extension commonly refers to OpenOffice Base, a discontinued open-source database management application serving as an alternative to MS Access. The ODB suffix defines database files formatted according to the OpenDocument standard for office applications.

The ODB file extension is also connected with ArcGIS for Desktop Basic (formerly called ArcView), part of the ArcGIS software suite aimed to compile, analyze, and manage geographic data. The .odb extension is attributed to object databases saved as an ASCII text file.

ODB files may also represent ABAQUS output database files created in Abaqus/CAE, part of Abaqus FEA software suite (formerly known as ABAQUS) used for finite element analysis. The analysis results are contained in a file with the .odb extension.
