The Goldmine software program is a Customer Resource Management software program that saves its databases in the HDCB format. These HDB files are complex text files that Goldmine reads to source the information displayed on screen. When you open an HDB file, you need to make sure you don't make any changes to it without knowing what you are doing. Even a single typo in the file can cause Goldmine to refuse to start.
Click "Start," then click in the search box.
Type "Notepad" and then press "Enter."
Click "File," then "Open" and browse to the HDB file that you want to open.
Click on the file, then click "Open."
