MDB File Format

Database (Microsoft Access)

MDB file format

MDB is a database file used by Microsoft Access. Though Access is tied into the Microsoft Office, MDB is Access’s own format, which is based on the Access Jet Database Engine. Access can also import or link to data from other applications, such as Excel, SharePoint lists, text, XML, Outlook, and HTML. MDB can be opened by OpenOffice.org, SAS Institute SAS, Wolfram Mathematica, Softpedia MDB Converter¸ and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. To be read by other applications, files can be converted to .TXT or .CSV formats using a MDB Converter.

MIME: application/msaccess, application/x-msaccess, application/vnd.msaccess, application/vnd.ms-access, application/mdb, application/x-mdb, zz-application/zz-winassoc-mdb
