An ODB file contains a database created by Apache OpenOffice Base (OOBase), an open-source desktop relational database program. It stores an archive of data files that comprise the database and is formatted according to the OpenDocument standard. ODB files are used to save structured information such as tables and records.

You can open an ODB file in OpenOffice Base (cross-platform) or LibreOffice Base (cross-platform). In OpenOffice Base, select File → Open... from the program's menu bar to open your ODB file.

You can also decompress your ODB file to manually examine the .XML files and database folder it contains. To do so, rename your ODB file to use the .zip extension and then decompress it with any Zip decompression utility, such as 7-Zip (Windows), Apple Archive Utility (Mac), or B1 Free Archiver (cross-platform).
