I have a game called Front Office Football 2007 for the PC, and I downloaded some program from a very reliable forum and source that a lot of people have experienced success with, and it produces spread sheets of players and their ratings in the past, but it makes .db files, and Excel and Access won't work with it. I'm just wondering what you guys can do to help me out. I'm looking for something free because I think I will be playing this game for a while, but if you post something that's not free, I'll see what I can do considering the price and the circumstances of me getting it. Thanks.

.db files are generally database files. However Windows also makes a file called thumbs.db which is used when you view a folder by thumbnail view.

A lot depends on the file format of this file, if its unique to a specific program then only that program will be able to open it. The days of when you could reliably tell somebody "oh that file opens in Program X" are long gone because there's nothing to stop other programs using the same extension for their data files. Access should be able to open it, but its a bit stuffy about what it'll work with.
