How do I view .sdw files

  jonmac 21:07 03 Jan 2005

I have a file with the extension .sdw which as far as I can see might be Star Office Suite or Open Text document. There used to be a Quick Viewer in Windows 98 which allowed you to look at such files and maybe get some text out of them but XP doesn't seem to have it. Is there a File Viewer available as a download which would do the trick?

Hi, though I am not familiar with the program, I believe these are Star Writer files. If you go to AskJeeves and type in ".sdw files" without the astericks, you will probably get more info.

Thanks to all. AndySD, I just couldn't get the viewer to download so I'll try again later. I'd rather have a viewer than download a full suite, meantime, but thanks whybe and Technotiger

An .sdw file is a shodow file used by a program called Folio for displaying a subset of the complete file.

Let me know if you want more information.
