The text file “SDF” stands for Standard Data Format and is the typically related to Standard Query Language (SQL) servers and databases. It’s a plain text file containing a list of items (items can be anything from names and addresses to orders and inventory) along with a simple key (the “header”) that describes the item. SDF files are the ultimate “low-tech” way to transfer data between people who don’t trust each other or have any other form of advanced technology at their disposal. There are many different header types and the format is very flexible. You can even add your own headers if you so choose. There are two main ways to use SDF files:
as a way to export data from one program to another; or as a way to import data from another source into your own.
How To Open SDF Files As A Way To Export Data From One Program To Another
Here’s an example of how you might use an SDF file to exchange data with another human being: Let’s say you are working on a book about the history of the automobile and you have created an Excel spreadsheet that contains all the info you need about every car manufactured and sold in the U.S. during the last 100 years. You’ve also created an SDF file with the name “Book_USA_CARS.sdf” which contains the same information. Now, let’s say you give this file to someone (like your spouse, your best friend or a data-savvy co-worker) who is not familiar with your subject area. That person scans the QR code on the first page of the sdf file (the one that says “USA CARS”) into his or her smartphone and is immediately transported to a webpage where they can view and download your entire 100-year history of the automobile in a neatly formatted.pdf document. They can zoom in and out, print, copy and paste cells, and do whatever else they need to in order to extract the data they need.
How To Use SDF Files As A Way To Import Data From Another Source Into Your Own
Here’s an example of how you might use an SDF file to transfer data from one computer program to another: Let’s say you have created an Excel spreadsheet that contains all the info you need about every car manufactured and sold in the U.S. during the last 100 years. In addition, let’s say you have another spreadsheet containing the same info but in a format that is usable by a different software program (like a database program such as Microsoft Access or a word processor like Microsoft Word). You can save this second file as an .sdf file and then give it to someone who has the different software program you used to create the first file. If they scan the QR code on the first page of the .sdf file (the one that says “USA CARS”), they will be transported to a webpage where they can download your entire 100-year history of the automobile in a nicely formatted.pdf document.
