The file format called SAM is a type of text file. It was originally used by a program called Samna Amni Pro, which later became Lotus Word Pro. If you want to convert a SAM file in its raw format into something more compatible with other text readers such as TXT or RTF, you can do so using the native program Notepad. This program comes preloaded on computers running the Windows operating system.
