This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I think it's .trc (at least for SQL Server 2005 and newer) - but I quite honestly don't remember what the ancient 2000 version used.... (too long ago) – marc_s Apr 9 '13 at 12:38
too right! it definitely is quite ancient, but unfortunately some people still stick to it....which makes life harder for us :( – amateur Apr 9 '13 at 12:41
