    FileXtra4 is only used to search and get filenames/folders/paths on your HD. It doesn't open specific filetypes. You need Xtras created for the specific programs for opening and reading those files.
    If you read the doentation on the website where you can get FileXtra4 you will find out what it does.

    To read your external database file would take a specific Xtra that can read and import the data from the database format you are using (ie. Access). If your database file is a simple delimited text file, it would be easy to write a program to read it into director properly.

    You need to specify the type of database you are using. Do a search for Xtras that handle databases.
