File Extension Name

I'm trying to find out the file extension for an MYOB Payroll data file - A simple question you may think but I cannot find the answer to this anywhere.  I recently upgraded my operating system and had to reload the software, now I cannot find my data file!  It would help if I knew what the file was likely to be called.

Re: File Extension Name

The payroll database is a collection of foxpro files with extensions of dbf, cdx, fpt, dct, dcx and dbc.

 

The 2012 payroll stores them (by default unless that is changed by the user) in sub-folders under folder C:\Users\Public\Data\MYOB\Payroll. All files in those folders should be located and copied/restored.

Re: File Extension Name

Is the AccountRight Database also using Foxpro dbf ?

I wish! The AccountRight database is M/soft SQL CE.
