Can you rephrase your question and provide more information?

You normally need to download, before opening it.

The problem I am having is that I can't open the file type: github.

Also, It won't upload either so I used screen shots.

The file icon appears to look like a MS Access database file.
I want to open the database file.

Don't bet on the icon. What file extension? Where is that icon placed? Use right-click to inspect it's properties.

Where did you get the file? Best place to determine how to open it would be from the source, so contact them and find out what to do with it.

FWIW: GitHub is a version control/change management system for software programming. You don't "open" a GitHub file, you download files from GitHub. GitHub does use a database, so perhaps you've got a GitHub database file - but you'd have to contact the person who gave you the file to determine that.

From your error, the file seems to have a file extension of "db" or "ors11.db" - it's hard to say from the error message. Your system may be configured to associate Access with that extension.

Try opening the file with Notepad to see what happens.
