Developer: N/A
File type: Approach Index File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .adx. Files with the file extension .adx can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .adx files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .adx file?

Data files are classified as such because of the nature of the content stored in a data file, and files appended with the ADX extension are examples of these data files. There are also many types of data files, and ADX files are categorized as database reference files. This is because the associated application uses the data stored in an .adx file when the user accesses corresponding features integrated into the supported program. Also known as Approach index files, these ADX files are created by the Lotus Approach software. The relational databases of a Lotus Approach project output file store relevant indexing details in these ADX files. Users can install the Lotus Approach application into their Microsoft Windows-based systems to implement support for these ADX files. The Lotus Approach software is bundled with other productivity tools of the Lotus Smart suite. The Lotus Approach software together will all other applications included in the Lotus Smart suite are developed by IBM (International Business Machines).

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .adx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .adx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
