What is a SET file?
A SET file is a settings file that stores various configuration settings and other preference. It may be created and used by a variety of programs such as Corel Painter, Autodesk AutoCAD, Nikon Capture, XANA Web browser, Sibelius music notation software, Diablo II, and Alpha Five.
You most likely will only encounter a SET settings file when navigating the installation directory of the program that created or uses the file. The file is referenced by the program and should not be opened manually. It is typically loaded by the application when the program is opened. Also, you should not move or delete the SET file because it may cause the program to function incorrectly.
File Type 2Document Library Property Set File
.SET File Association 2
A SET file contains properties used by Xerox Document Library software, which organizes documents into virtual "cabinets" on a computer. It stores property sets that can be applied to cabinets created by Xerox FreeFlow software.
Properties contain descriptive information about documents. When a Library Search is performed, documents can be selected based on their properties, which makes finding documents easier. This helps make large databases of documents more manageable.
SET files are created by the Library Administration Tool, which is part of Xerox FreeFlow Software package. To create a new Property Set, click the "Cabinets and Properties" tab, then select "New Property Set" from the toolbar.
File Type 3Alpha Five Set Data Dictionary File
.SET File Association 3
Set Dictionary file created by Alpha Five, an IDE that enables users to develop Web, desktop, and mobile applications; contains a list of all the forms attached to the set and a record entry for every linking definition; created along with .SEM and .SEX linked set files.
When two or more tables are linked together in Alpha Five, a set, which consists of a SET, SEM, and SEX file is created. These files make up the set data dictionary for the two or more tables linked together. The dictionary stores reports, forms, and any other objects linked to the set. SET files should be kept with the SEM and SEX Set Data Dictionary files in order for Alpha to find all of the elements and their pieces.
NOTE: In 2013, Alpha Five became Alpha Anywhere.
[Name of your set].set - When you create the set, the SET file will be created with the same name as the related SEM and SEX files.
