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

what is a .odc file?

The ODC file extension is known as Office Data Connection File which was developed by Microsoft. The file format is a connection information file that contains properties to connect to, and retrieve data from an external data source or a Reporting Services Report. It includes include a connection string, data queries, authentication information, and other settings. They can be created using the Data Connection Wizard in Microsoft Excel that generates the connection information using HTML markup with included segments of XML. ODC files are stored using HTML and XML. Existing data connections may be viewed in Excel by selecting Data from Connections. They are used to store reusable connection and data query information which is useful for sharing connection information, as well as for performing periodic data refreshes within an Excel workbook. Files in ODC format can be opened with Microsoft Excel 2011 and Apple Safari in Mac OS platforms. And they can be opened with Microsoft Excel 2010 and Microsoft Internet Explorer in Microsoft Windows platforms.

Launch a .odc 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 .odc file will open it.

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers and services, released by Microsoft on August 1, 1989 for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Originally, the first version of Microsoft Office contained Microsoft Word, a word processor and was previously considered the main program in Office; Microsoft Excel, a spreadsheet program that originally competed with the dominant Lotus 1-2-3; and Microsoft PowerPoint, a popular presentation program for Windows and Mac.; a marketing term for a bundled set of applications. As years passed by, Office applications have grown significantly closer with shared features such as a common spell checker, Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) data integration and Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications scripting language. Microsoft also positions Office as a development platform for line-of-business software under the Office Business Applications brand. The current versions are Office 2010 for Windows, released on June 15, 2010; and Office 2011 for Mac OS X, released October 26, 2010.The new Office 2013 (version 15 of the Office suite) is reported to be released around December 2012.

a word of warning

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