It's probably an appointment book file, so I guess similar to the 'business

sounds like a Corel Draw Automatic Backup extension. Get em to send the
correct file by saving the picture properly in Corel first.

.abk files are chess move books, usually opening moves. If you want to know what's inside, then install Arena Chess GUI, look for the opening books setting and click on select book and then click this file....
