.pks File Extension

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

what is a .pks file?

Files with the .pks extension are also associated with Oracle PL/SQL software, but they are used by the software as Oracle Package Spec Files. They are not the file created by the software itself but they are the specifications, definitions and other information about the package files the software created which are in the .pkb format. These files are helpful in providing users a glimpse about the actual Oracle packages file specs. Files using the .pks extension can be opened using any text editor but there are also other applications aside from the software that can be used to open these files such as sqldeveloper.exe, PokerStat Application as well as .pks file editor and file converters. Besides that, the file extension is also associated with the Insight II software. This program was developed by Accelrys Software Inc. and is used mainly in designs, molecular algorithms, etc.

how to open a .pks file?

Launch a .pks 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 .pks 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 .pks files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .pks file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .pks file will open the correct application.

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.

a word of warning

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