Description:
PDB is the file extension for the Physical model backup file associated with PowerDesigner. It is also the file extension for the TACT data file and for the 3Com PalmPilot database file.


I think its some database file, try opening that in program similar to MsAccess or Excel .

PDB (Brookhaven Protein Databank format) files.
 The PDB files can be directly viewed by (a helper application)  Rasmol or by a plug-in Chime.

In the Microsoft site it says " The .PDB extension stands for "program database." It holds the new format for storing debugging information that was introduced in Visual C++ version 1.0. In the future, the .PDB file will also hold other project state information. One of the most important motivations for the change in format was to allow incremental linking of debug versions of programs, a change first introduced in Visual C++ version 2.0. "

maybe this helps.....
