I have an old .OBD file (Office Binder).

How can I open it in my Mac OS X or Linux?

If you can find a Wnidows machine, MS offers an "Unbinder". :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 27 '12 at 20:12
  1. Install VirtualBox.
  2. Install Trial Windows virtual machine from this Github repository.
  3. Install Microsoft's Office 97 Unbind Utilities in the VM.
  4. Send your .ODB files to the Windows virtual machine and extract them using unbind.exe.
