Open Microsoft Access databases on your Mac – regardless if they are in the older MDB or the newer ACCDB format.

• view, search and export your data
• the only universal Access database viewer – supports MDB, ACCDB, MDE and ACCDE
• no hidden costs, no in-app-purchases

This app makes viewing Access file quick and easy. A convenient search function lets you find what you are looking for. Double clicking rows brings up a record window perfect for reading long text or inspecting images.

MDB Viewer plays nice with others: export your database as Excel files, as CSV files, convert it to SQLite, or create SQL dumps. Because all apps have their unique intricacies, the documentation includes detailed instructions for transferring your data to Filemaker, Bento, Excel, Numbers, Open Office, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and Address Book.

While MDB Viewer shows all the data stored in the database, it can not display forms or queries, and it can not modify databases.

Amazing Product

This product did exactly what I wanted — exported a large access database into a MySQL compatible dump. It is strange that the only working tool I have found for migrating .accdb files comes from a single developer who wrote a product for the Mac platform. This is well worth the $20 dollars. This will save me lots of time and surely impress my colleagues.

Works Great & Great Support

Chose MDB Viewer wisely from many similar apps. Quickly converted 9 year-old Access files into Excel for Mac. Tech Support by the developer was offered if any problems occur. Jakob Eggerprompt was prompt and very helpful in converting a problem file. Highly recommend this useful app.

Exactly what I needed!

I need to open an access database on my mac. It opened it immediately and I was able to then export the files to a csv. I am so impressed with this product! It saved me a ton of time. Thank you!
