I have a paper document that is scanned via a printer, its scans as PDF but once this image goes into our image database the file type is converted to *.MAG, i am unable to open MAG in PDF or Image viewers.  MAG is the file type that this system uses, the system is called Fortis designed i think by Westbrook.

Has anyone had experience in MAG or know what may open it ?

Hi Ben,

Afraid not, Access cant open images like this, i think its just luck that MS has something like this, one section down is the company who make the MAG file type but still not help from them on wheather it can be opened as a jpg or tiff

nice app but also does not open the file, i have done some more checking and MAG in this application is a code wrapper, it wraps up code, so normally when i double click the file it only opens in the native Fortis database file viewer so in this case i dont believe that MAG is an image type

ill accept for you though as you have helped
