    Which database for these files?

    Hello,
    i want to discover of which database are these files:

    every table of this database have:
    - one file without extension
    - one .key file
    - one .map file...

    Of which DB engine? I think it's a oldest database (1990~)... please help me!

    Many thanks!

    Do you have ANY information other than the file extensions? Was this a general purpose database? or, was the program a special purpose program which stores its data in files with the above naming convention?

    Was it a mainframe app?

    Hello, thanks for your attention to my problem!
    This database is used by a legacy application who is programmed (i think...) in visual basic.. the application is composed of 100-120 files .exe (one every program function).

    Before it's ported to VB with windows interface, this apps is born to be used in dos.

    Many thanks!

    It sounds like it's a custom format of some sort. Have you tried opening the files with notepad to see if it's a fixed width format?
