Thread: Problem opening Dat file

  1. #1
    I have been sent a file and when i downloaded it, it is a dat file and when i try to open it it says windows cannot open the file and asks me to find a program in the list or look online.

    This is how it looks file looks in the attachment bit, winmail.dat application/ms-tnef 60.98kb.

    I opened this in word and the writing is all messed up. I opened it in notepad and it is still messed up but i can see a little bit. Is there wan way i can view this properly or is there a program that will let me see it clearly. The file is coursework instructions so it should open in word shouldn't it?

    A quick google search gave me this link:

    or you can try this, some guy is offering to unpack the attachments for you.
