Hi teera,
Most likely, it is a Palm Pilot database, or perhaps a Photo Deluxe file. For other possibilities, see http://filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=pdb

Cheers!

My guess would also be that it's a palm file.  I have never found a free pdb reader for windows though.

Have you got windows xp ? If so try and open it and it will give you a dialog box asking you to search on the web to see what to use to open that file type. It will then open an internet explorer window which will tell you the program(s) it uses to open that type of file.

How ever as byundt said, it is probably a Pam Pilot database or something like that.

Unless you mean PDF and it was a typo then it is adobe acrobat, but I am sure it wasnt a typo :)

I have a mind-mapping program named BrainForest that creates/opens .PDB files. I installed it in 1999. The company that marketed the program was Aportis, but they've folded and sold the product to a company called Ultrasoft. You can get more information and a 30-day trial of the current product here:

Hi teera,
  It seems that you have received a powerdesigner backup file. From powerdesigner you can save it as a .pdm file and th backup is stored as a .pdb file.

I just switched over from Palm to a Dell Axim, and rather than convert all my PDB's to pdf or buy yet another piece of new software, I ran an old one that I already had. I have DocReaderWin (got it on palmgear a couple years ago, PM me if you can't find it.) I used it to open the PDB's then saved them as TXT files. They look fine, and open easily in PocketWord.

I've found one or two sites that may offer some help in opening .PDB files:

or

members.tripod.com/rahuldeshpande/pdbViewer/pdbviewer.html

or perhaps this one may do the trick for you:
