    Did a search already, not a lot of info about these.
    I know I am about to get one via email.
    I have Corel 12 and that's about it.
    Are these hard to open?
    Can they be opened?

    It's like knowing you are gonna get a flu when one of the kids come home sick.

    I usually have to change the extension around (.eps, .ai, .pdf, etc.) until I find out what type it really is. Eventually you'll find a program that will open it. Just did this same thing last week, turned out it was a .pdf and it wall all gravy after that!

    DAT is the extension that gets applied to a Mac file when it is split into the resource fork and the data fork. this happens when a mac file is sent over the internet and then received by a PC. You will need to determine the file type it is supposed to be and change the extension before you will be able to open it.

    What is trickiest about it is that the email will have two identically named files attached. If you download them into the same folder, one will over write the other.

    If you need any help, email me the file.

    Thanks.
    I'm still waiting.
    Maybe they will forget to send it and I won't have to do the job!
    :)
    Don't you hate how clients think you can just magically open anything?
    Don't you hate it when they think you can just print stuff out of a 4B?
    hahaha

    I think this is a Mac to PC issue. See Wikipedia article.
