What is an NV file?

Database file created by NewViews for DOS (also referred to as NV1), a DOS program used for business accounting; can include payroll, tax, expense, income, and other accounting information; used for storing and tracking company finances.

More Information

NV files can be converted to the newer .NV2 format using a NewViews for DOS component called NVEXPORT, a procedure library made available by Q.W. Page. After conversion, the created file can be opened by NewViews 2 the first time NewViews 2 is opened.

NOTE: NewViews for DOS was originally released in 1986. That year it won PC Magazine's award for Technical Excellence. The software is still used by some organizations that have not transitioned to NewViews 2 (NV2) for Windows.
