Hi,.MUL is the extension of the Ultima Online Game. Are you sure that the content is ASCII in the first place? If so, just rename the file to TXT and read it as ASCII, but I'd wager a bet that the format is more complex and you won't be able to grab the content this way.cheers, teylyn

So: which application produces the .MUL file? What is the structure of the file? What is the encoding? You need to supply these details, otherwise any answer here will be a guess.

Any data can be read in acsii format by opening in a general viewer like notepad.exe, but will only make sense if it is intended to be opened as ascii.
If it isnt supposed to be read as ascii, it will be a load of useless random characters when opened.

You need to find out what format this is in and what software is suposed to read it.
Discuss this with whoever provided the file.
