MDBLite is the fastest way to convert your Microsoft Access™ MDB databases to sqlite. Just drag an MDB database to MDBLite to start the conversion process.

Once converted you'll have a fully featured sqlite database than you can also export as CSV or as raw SQL statements.

IMPORTANT: MDBLite cannot convert .accdb databases and if you use Access 2007 or newer you must export your databases to Access 2003 format.

Purchase was a fail for me...

Unfortunately, I had a one-off job which required me to create a mysql database for an event's custom web app. The attendee list was delivered to me in a .mdb format. I, being an non microsoft product user was not familiar with this format, but since I found MDBLite and it was priced within my budget, I was comfortable enough to agree to take the list in the .mdb format.

When I tried to read the file using MDBLite I recieved an error stating "Unknown Jet version. Couldn't open input mdb database. Please note that MDBLite cannot convert .accdb databases and if you use Access 2007 or newer you must export your databases to Access 2003 format." Of course, all of this error message is mumbo-jumbo to me! And of course, it was too late to get the client to try and give me the file in another format...., in my case, I wasted my dough! So, I will give it a "don't like it" star rating even though I really didn't get to use it!

I’m so glad I gave it a try! Worked perfectly.

I was skeptical after reading several negative reviews, but I really needed a method to open and view a .mdb access database file on my MacBook. This was one of the least expensive options, so I gave it a try. It worked perfectly, was super easy, and I was able to open and view the file, and save it as a sqlite database file.

Worked ad advertised.

I needed to convert a MDB file to CSV which is wht this tool is advertised to do. After seeing all the negative reviews, I was skeptical to get it -but went ahead and tried it.

It worked perfectly. Opened the MDB file, gave me a view of all the tables in the database. I was able to select a table, File>Export to CSV, and it worked perfectly.
