How to Open a WDB File

A WDB (Works Database) file is created by the database program bundled into the Microsoft Works productivity suite. It is primarily created for home use such as address lists and home inventories, and can easily transfer information with other programs of the suite such as the word processor and spreadsheet. Only one program can open a WDB file.
