.wfm File Extension

Developer: Tektronix/dataBased Intelligence
File type: Tektronix Waveform Data File/dBASE Form
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .wfm. Files with the file extension .wfm can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .wfm files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .wfm file?

There are two common file types associated with the .wfm file extension. First, it is known as Tektronix Waveform Data File because the files that this file extension is attached to are data files created with the use of Tektronix oscilloscopes and logic analyzers. This program allows users to perform electronic circuit and signal voltage tests. The .wfm files created by this program contain information about signals wherein this information can be displayed on the device. These files are helpful for the creation of time versus voltage graphs. The Wavestart software can open these files as well as with the use of Tektronix Windows Oscilloscope WFM Converte, these files can be converted into a different format. The next application using the .wfm file extension is dBase. This is a program that allows users to manage database. The .wfm files created by this software are known as forms and they are used to enter and modify data with the use of the program.

how to open a .wfm file?

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

In 1980, dBase was published by Ashton-Tate for CP/M, the original developer of the software. It was the first database management system (DBMS) for microcomputer which included the query system which is database engine and the programming language which is forms engine. Some users said that dBase was an excellent interactive ad-hoc manipulation tool because one can easily manipulate, analyze, format and perform calculations while SQL have declarative operations which retrieves data sets from a relational database (RDBMS). dBase' first file format is .dbf. It is recommended by the Microsoft to save dBase file in Microsoft Works so that it can read by Microsoft Excel while its second file type is .dbt. For files with single indexes, dBase uses .ndx, and .mdx for files holding 1 to 48 indexes. The latest version of the legendary relational DBMS is dBase 2.8. while dbDOS 1.5 can quickly and easily work with dBASE III, IV, and V for Windows 32/64 bit operating system. dBase Classic also builds high powered data-driven applications that use the xBase languge and runs on lastest operating system of Microsoft when used with dbDOS.

a word of warning

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