I downloaded this great tool a couple of days ago and have been working on it. To my utter frustration, my laptop crashed this morning. I'm trying to re-open my saved file, but it's a really weird file extension. Before my laptop crashed, I had been saving it regularly and checking print previews. It was fine.

 

Anyone else use this program or have any insight?

 

Thank you!

I think you have to open the program itself, then open your file from the program.

I've tried to save the file as a PDF and it won't. From what I've found, the file extension will only open up with the FDA Builder tool. However, when you are in the plan, you can export your plan to a pdf or other file format.

 

I do warn you about using the tool, it does have its drawbacks. For one, under the Process Preventative Controls section - it doesn't ask for who is going to do it. I added it under 'how the monitoring will be conducted section'. Another drawback - you can't personalize it.

I've had good success with the program itself.  It sounds like you need to load the program again, perhaps on a different computer, and then you might be able to open the file.  The software has to be opened first, and in the software you choose the file.  Back up files often, and once you finish the Food Safety Plan, you make a .pdf of it for signing.

If you have saved it the file is on your computer somewhere.  You can open the file on any computer that has the FS plan builder installed on it.  Once open you can print to PDF or export to PDF.  If I recall you can also export to csv or excel type file...I think.

I assume you know where builder program saves yr draft responses.

(If not simply search for file extension since you mentioned it is rare [is it ?])

 

So, as per Ryan's Post, do you have a spare computer  ?

 

If so just re-install builder program on it. 

Make a quick dummy response.

Save it. To folder XYZ.

Then copy/paste yr previously saved file FPrev to folder XYZ  (or, less preferably, if necessary replace the saved dummy response by FPrev)

Then reopen file FPrev in spare computer.


Kind Regards,
