in thread parse MS Access DB (.MDB)

Having reviewed mdbtools and looked at ODBC drivers we have decided to go back to the client and insist they provide the data in a more sensible format. Thank you to everyone who helped.

    Hello bangers,

    If, for whatever reason, you find yourself needing to fall back to a Plan B, it occurs to me that you could read Access files on Linux by installing either Apache OpenOffice or LibreOffice. Both are free and open source, and should be able to read .mdb files. Just a thought, in case you need another option.

    Hope that helps,
