The PFA file extension is related to Formdef or Pagedef. A page definition is a resource used to define how data is to be formatted on a logical page. When generated by PPFA, a page definition is stored as a resource in the page-definition library.

This command must be specified when you define a page definition. All of the PAGEDEF subcommands are optional; defaults are assumed.

Help how to open PFA files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension PFA:

As far as we know, this .pfa file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
