Re: How to open .mdb file

MDB View is a software which is use to open mdb file without Ms access. An .mdb file is always required to configure a Microsoft Access data source, It is primarily associated with 'Access' by Microsoft Corporation. Another option to open mdb file is MDB Viewer Plus, It's a freeware viewer and editor for Microsoft Access file. You can see a detailed information for each record, and you can search for an element in the whole database.

Do you want to open the database within Access, or open to extract/manipulate data contained within? If you have written an MDB database file and you want open mdb file without MS access then you need to install software.

First, you need the Microsoft Jet Engine for accessing MS Access database files. If you are getting any error while opening Access database (.mdb) file like Nothing occurs or An hourglass appears for several seconds, and then nothing occurs then you need Modify the shortcut >In the target of the shortcut, include the path of MSAccess.exe.

You still need Access to run an Access file or you can use MDB Browser and Editor 2.3 it is used to work with data in your database, tables from databases created in Access. You can open tables or SQLs from a view window or FileMaker will open it.
