I have some files on my computer which are database files for a property management application I own. I am wanting to see if I can programmatically attach to those database files. What kind of database uses the .df1 file extension?  Does anyone know if I can connect via ODBC or OLE DB and read data from these databases?

thanks!

According to http://www.file-ext.com/d.html, it's a "Omnis7 and Omnis Studio Database File".  That being said, other databases have used various extensions so it may be something else.  Sometimes the first few bytes of the file can help decipher it. What's the name of the "property management software"?  That might help us figure it out.

Dumb question. Have you contacted the vendor of TenantPro?  A quick Google of "tenantpro" and "ODBC" finds:

I don't really want to contact tenantpro directly at this time. Looking at that link, it is apparent that the OMNIS odbc driver is what I need. I actually downloaded it and installed it, but it appears there are a few settings in tenantpro that needs to be set before this will work. This does answer my question though - thanks for your help!
