what is a .msb file?

The MSB file extension is also known as the Oracle Binary Message File which was developed by Oracle. It is used for software management which allows users to save application messages like errors. It is saved in a binary format and compiled form, which allows quicker message lookup and acts as a readable log file for program alerts. It provides information from the Oracle Call Interface and Application Call Interface. MSB files are generated for a specific Oracle application and language. To display the MSB dialog box, select the MSB Path button in the Items page of the Create Product dialog box. Then supply the name of the MSB file and the three-letter facility of the message. This button is active only when the usage type is a MSB usage type. The filename or directory indicates the product ID and the localization. For instance, oraus.msb uses "ora" for Oracle Database and "us" for the English language. Files in MSB format can be opened with Oracle database in Microsoft Windows and Linux platforms.

how to open a .msb file?

Launch a .msb file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .msb file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .msb files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .msb file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .msb file will open the correct application.

Oracle database

Oracle database

The Oracle database is an application developed by the Oracle Corporation. It is an application known as an RDBMS which stands for Object-relational database management system. The main function of this application is for the storage and retrieval of related information. This application allows users to control concurrency or accessing similar data so that they cannot be changed or updated in such a way that would compromise the integrity of the data. This software also features read consistency which guarantees that there is consistency to a set of data within a statement and that the data cannot just be changed even if a statement is being executed. And with this application’s locking mechanism, the access of data can already be controlled so no one can make changes to it. This software is very useful for business organizations and offices requiring reliable software to manage their database information. This software is mainly associated with MSB files and runs on Windows, MAC, and Linux operating systems.
Oracle PL/SQL software

Oracle PL/SQL software

Oracle PL/SQL software is known as an Integrated Development Environment used to develop, test, debug, and optimize packages and triggers, which are considered as Oracle PL/SQL stored-program units. It is also software designed as imperative 3GL and it processes SQL commands seamlessly. This program also features descriptions for context-sensitive help and database-objects, a multi-session or multi-threaded environment, a template library, command window, a full-featured integrated debugger, a code assistant and a macro library. It allows users to develop Oracle applications easily, with guaranteed high code quality and productivity. Since the Oracle PL/SQL software processes SQL commands, it is used to open PKB files because these files are the script files that the PL/SQL software created. Like the Oracle database application, the Oracle PL/SQL software is also robust, secure and portable software. This software also comes with a latest version that features multi-user connection allowing more than one users to be connected using more than one database at a time.

The reports can be placed in the design surface. The developer may specify the formulas to be evaluated keenly upon the generation of the reports. There a formatting options for the formulas. Crystal Report may also come with options the groups the data into bands, and can be ungroup according to the user's desires. Sub reports, and some GIS (Geographic information systems) functionalities and graphing are supported by Crystal Reports. The data sources that are supported are: IBM DB2, Ingres, Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Severs MySQL, Oracle and many more.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .msb 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, .msb. 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.
