Hi,

I have an issue to open .rec file
It's from Capita. I think they call it SIMS. It is a financial management system for schools.

I cannot find any software that can open it.
Can you help?

Many thanks

Have you or Capita migrated your data over to SQL 2008?

I am not at all familiar with the software at all.. and it is probably a proprietary file format.. They may be able to export the data to csv or excel format.. If it was an sql database we might have more success unless they encrypt the database inside of their program.

Do you know what sort of data it is? .rec files are an audio format from a cursory google search.

The data contains some sort of school materials. As far as I know those are not video or music files.

You will need the software that created these files in order to use them properly since it is a proprietary format.  (I think you have already guessed this already)

Then you need to purchase the software that generated the files. Is this part of a legal discovery process?
