FRM File Format

MySQL table formatting file

FRM is a file extension for formatting used with MySQL. FRM stands for FoRMat. FRM files are used to define the format of a table used with MySQL. MySQL is a cross-platform relational database. FRM files will have the same name as the table they reference, but with a .FRM extension. FRM files are created by MySQL when the table is created.

The FRM file extension is also used for document files for FrameMaker or FrameBuilder, executable files for Oracle, v3.0 and earlier, form files for Visual Basic, merge form files for WordPerfect for Windows, symbol report files for DataCAD as well as generic form files.
