File extension .DCT
|Spell Checking Dictionary Format
DCT is a .dct file extension used by IBM Dictionary Utility. It is a legacy file format created to store dictionary data, and was a widely used format prior to the development of other, more portable formats. This file extension is no longer used for active development or deployment of file-based dictionaries, however some legacy applications may still use it for its database content. Two common usages for this format were to store an index of information by source and an index of keywords by source.
The DCT file extension was often used to store large amounts of word definitions, or to categorize documents into files. This format was designed to take advantage of the search and retrieval capabilities of databases, making source queries easier. Other uses for the.dct file extension include phone books, mailing lists, customer databases and product catalogs. It was most often used by Lotus Notes, Lotus Symphony, and IBM DisplayWrite.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .DCT) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .DCT extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .DCT file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .DCT extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .DCT extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .DCT file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .DCT file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .DCT file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .DCT file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .DCT file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
