.seam file

Hi,

 

I just downloaded a report for sales and I get a .seam file, rather than a .csv file.  How does one read a .seam file?  Not loving the new vendor portal.

Quite simple really!

 

All you have to do is download a program to convert the .seam file in to 38 separate .wtf files, then each .wtf file must be opened by another program to digitally sign them. You can apply for a Report-signing licence from RIM (Keys will be sent to you within 4 months!). The signed files must then be attacted to an email and sent to justgivemethedamnreport@blackberry.com. At this point, RIM staff will recompile the .wtf files in to a .csv file which will be printed on 8.5"x11" paper, signed and stamped (in triplicate) by RIM's CEO. From there it will be sent to the quality assurance department, to be checked by a team of engineers. Once all this is complete, the paper report will be photo-copied, scanned, re-printed, and faxed to you!

 

You can expect to receive your report in 7-8 weeks! :smileywink:

//probably not too far from the truth though...

 

 

[EDIT]: In all seriousness: I found out that the .seam file is actually a CSV file. Just change the extension to .csv and open it as normal

Re: .seam file

It's funny because it's true...

Re: .seam file

When I converted the .SEAM to a .CSV, everytime I tried opening the file it told me it was corrupted.

 

To actually make this work I had to change the extension to .zip, extract the .zip and then there was the CSV with the report named exactly how I saw it in App World. The CSV opened perfectly from there.
