Re: I am using open office and it will not open my blackberry backup file. What must I do?

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

The Blackberry file type is proprietary and cannot be accessed via Office.

I suggest looking at the ABC Amber Blackberry converter software. I have used it and it does retrieve data from the .ipd file as advertised.

I have attached a link.

Thanks,
