What kind of database files can I import?

Currently 8 MB is the maximum import file size that Paper Tiger Online can handle. We are working on increasing this capacity. 

In Paper Tiger, the database is the main component, and as such its files are very important. You can Import the following files from your current Paper Tiger Desktop application to your Paper Tiger Online Account:


1.  ".BAK" Database Backup File:

This the database backup and archive file extension for Paper Tiger 4.0 and above.


2.  ".MDF" SQL Server Database File:

This is the actual databse file used by SQL server 2005 and 2005 for Paper Tiger 4.0 and above.




Note: effective 7/31/2014, we can no longer import version 3.0 or older databases (".PTD" Paper Tiger Database Backup File).


If you need to know where your database is located, please see our knowledge base article at
