Does anybody use SQL Server? I installed it yesterday. Tried to open .mdf extension file which was e-mailed to me.
But the file showing a warning message "Error detected during read in file 'FileName.mdf'. Is there another way to open this file?

Are you absolutely certain....
1. The file is safe to open
2. That it is, in fact, a database file.

IF so you will likely need to go through the "attach" process so an .ldf (log file) is generated and associated with the .mdf

There are any number of programs that can generate and or use a .mdf file and many are not actual database programs
