    My first guess would be an Ami-Pro document. Delphi often used them for storing graphics and formatted text.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    thanks Pat,

    but this exe file use mdb file because when I use exe file in Temp Folder create files with these names: Jet3061.tmp, Jet6141.tmp
    And when I close application Temp Folder clear very silent.

    Can you describe me how to combine mdb files in one file?
    And then use this one file (data.sam) in Delphi?

    Regards for yout attention

    I can't offer much help because almost every Delpi application does things differently than any other Delpi application. Without access to the source code or spending many hours with the program, I don't know enough to be of much help to you.

    Hi Amir,
    I confronted the same situation. I working on an application which uses SAM files to read data from. However, I cannot extract the raw data from it.

    I would like to know if you have succeeded in your case or achieve new ideas.

    Thanks
    Talie
