    I have been searching for a product that can open .xfdl files. There seems to be a link out there to a PureEdge viewer by IBM but all links end at a dead end. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Supposedly versions of adobe reader from 2009 onward should be able to view them.

    I threw it into the title because this is the format that the military uses for most of it's documents, so I was hoping it would catch the eye of another military member, thanks for your help though

    False and false. And that's coming from a military member.

    Agreed. I think it's in poor taste when military member use their service as a way for special treatment or favors.

    Just lay off him! For heaven sake he just wants to get a reader, can you just help the guy? But as far as THE QUESTION goes (because I don't scan forums looking for people to argue and disagree with), I do think that the new versions of Adobe Reader can open them, not sure about 2009 though.

    I agree with you benjaminaho, tolerance is best suited for this forum. 

    I know this is over a year old, but it bothers me when someone doesn't know what they are talking about. Hopefully anyone who stumbles upon this thread looking for this answer, like I did, will realize this is a valid question.

    This person is attempting to correct someone and has no idea what he's talking about!! I'm also a military member and my unit has sent me numerous files to my private computer over the past few years and I ALWAYS have difficulty viewing them! (remembering how I did it from the time before)

    I understand this opinion, but his response clearly explains his wording. And I think it's a valid reason. I'm a military member and a Google search brought me to this thread. My unit sent me another xfdl file and I'm searching to try and remember how to open it.

    So, I think the wording of the original post is helpful. Regardless, thanks to those who posted a solution.
