The file contains data in JSON format which is common for many applications today. You may read more e.g. here:

The list of databases supporting JSON is e.g. here: but you may find JSON processing libraries in .NET Framework and elsewhere.

The file extension is irrelevant in this case.

Is a simple text file with JSON data..
Its exact format reads MaskFit.Models.Database.Database

I cannot say what created it but open it with Notepad.  It is a JSON file.

Thanks John - I did just try opening with  text editor and can read the contents as well as Visual Studio will open the file.   I was expecting this to be MS ACCESS type of format.  

Do you know of a program that reads JSON data and puts in a better interface?   I can delve deeperwith this information though and really, REALLY appreciate you fast response!

First thing I always do and it appears the others did as well:  Open it in Notepad or another editor.  Many times there some indication of what the file is in the header.  If not in the header someone else in the file in clear text.
