What is an FRO file?

A FRO file is a compiled report created by dBASE IV, an older version of the dBASE database management software. It stores a report in a format that allows users to view data from a database in a structured format (based on the report's parameters). dBASE replaced FRO files with the REO file type.

More Information

Ashton-Tate introduced dBASE IV (or dBase IV) in 1988, succeeding dBase III. Borland then purchased Ashton-Tate, acquiring dBASE IV, and released a revised version of the software in 1992, directed more at programmers than casual users.

NOTE: dBASE stands for "dataBased Intelligence."
