MDB file

Is there some way to peruse an MDB file without having MS
Access installed
Nov 12 '05 #1

You can get to the data contained in the tables through any ODBC-compliant
client. You can use either DAO or ADO to get at the data. Other than that,
no, there's no way to get at the contents of an MDB.

1) You can use VB, Delphi or other systems which can access (no pun intended) Access
MDBs. But these will likely use Jet DLLs and such same as Access.

2) MDB Tools is a set of libraries and utilities to facilitate exporting data from MS
Access databases (mdb files) without using the Microsoft DLLs. In other words they
are reverse engineering the layout of the MDB file. mdbtools.source forge.net/

I have compiled some code, some written by me, some compiled from various sources online, and basically i've got a very simple flat file photo gallery. An upload form, to upload the photos and give them a caption, storing the caption and filename in a text file. It's a bit buggy when removing the photos and captions from the file, and also in displaying them on the delete page. you can see it in action at www.4am.com.au/gallery/upload.php...
