    Acrobat Forms Data Format (FDF) is probably most common, but it certainly isn't guaranteed. None of the apps that I've used in the past 25 years that created .FDF files had anything to do with Adobe nor Acrobat. You can't tell what a file is just by checking the file extension. It's almost a meaningless question nowadays.

    Two additional possibilities would be a file Format Definition File by IBM and an Origin (Fitting Function Definition File) file by OriginLab.

    The file extension isn't enough info.

    Here is an another good link for fdf: https://whatis.techtarget.com/fileformat/FDF-Forms-Document-Adobe-Acrobat. You can open it by verypdf (a small tool).

    Maybe you can open it successfully with "verypdf" and maybe you can't. Just because it has a .FDF extension doesn't mean it's a "forms definition format" file. I have a number of .FDF files that "verypdf" can't handle, and I suspect that other members have similar files.
