Hi pdsmicro,

a LBL extension can be everything, the default info I have =

LBL      =      Unknown Apple II File (found on Golden Orchard Apple II CD Rom)
LBL      =      Daqarta Extended Audio Data (Interstellar Research)
LBL      =      Label
LBL      =      Markin Label File (Markin)
LBL      =      Creatacard Label Project (Broderbund)
LBL      =      British National Bibliography File

But, if you post the contents (or a part of it) I can try to determinate what it is
of course this will help only if the contents is text and not graphical data

Regards,
Murph

Could be anything.  Where did he get it?  What program was used to create it?

Your best bet is to post the file so we can look at it.

@Murphey2: I've read your response a couple of times now, and I can't find these questions anywhere.  Maybe you can point them out to me?

In addition to the programs listed above, there are a lot of other programs that use this extension, unfortunately.  If you are sure it is a label of some sort, you can probably eliminate

dBase,
some Unknown Apple II File (found on Golden Orchard Apple II CD Rom),
Daqarta Extended Audio Data (Interstellar Research), and
British National Bibliography File options

Broderbund's various label software are very popular, and the format is used by lots of other programs as well.  I'd try one of these first:

The Print Shop
PrintMaster (and PrintMaster Gold)

Zebra Designer is another good bet for labels.  I'd try this second.

There is a much more comprehensive list of programs using this extension at:

Sorry, you can't really eliminate dBase - LBL is the dBase label format.
