MDB Viewer Plus 2.53
MDB Viewer Plus is a freeware viewer plus editor for opening Microsoft Access MDB and ACCDB database files. It does not need to be installed to run. It uses Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) which is installed as part of Windows.

MDB Viewer Plus has been written to provide a free, quick and easy way to open, view, edit, filter, sort, import to, export from, modify and search MDB and ACCDB files. This is useful for software developers like myself who use Access databases as a backend database for their bespoke software. MDB Viewer Plus provides a convenient way to view and edit these databases. The table info screen even has the ability to copy the list of field names in a table to the clipboard. A developer can then paste this list into their source code for direct access.
What are MDB / ACCDB files ?

MDB and ACCDB files are Microsoft Access Database files. ACCDB is the newer format to the original MDB file. Both Accdb and MDB files can be opened with MDB Viewer Plus.
Opening MDB and ACCDB Files

MDB Viewer Plus can be used to open MDB files and Accdb files without having Access installed. It will also use workgroup files if specified in the open options. Workgroup files (MDW) can be specified using the open options.

If you need to open and view many MDB files frequently. You can associate MDB and Accdb files with MDB Viewer Plus so that they open with MDB Viewer Plus when you double click on then in explorer.

If you are always using the same MDB or ACCDB file, you can create a shortcut on your desktop to MDB Viewer Plus and specify the MDB file as a runtime parameter.

How to open Accdb files

To open an ACCDB file select "ACCDB files" from the drop down box on the open dialog labelled "Files of type:" then select your Accdb. Note that if you don't have Access 2007 or higher installed you will need to install the Microsoft Access 2007/2010 database engine first as a prerequisite. You can download the Access 2007 database engine from Microsoft's website.

If you do not have the Access Database Engine installed you will receive and error "Provider can't be found ..."

25/2/2018 - MDB Viewer Plus 2.53 Released

In this version of MDB Viewer Plus I have now made the 'Table Info' dialogue dock underneath the table list dialogue which in previous versions was floating window.

There are new tabs underneath the main toolbar to contain the tables and queries etc.

The 'repair and compact' feature that wasn't working has now been repaired. :)

As in every new release there is also a number of minor correction, alterations and bug fixes.

The query dialogue has now been changed to open as a tab under the new 'Queries' tab. I am contemplating whether to remove query tabs internally to that dialogue and have them open as seperate tabs under the main 'Queries' tab. For those of you who prefer to open a query as a floating window there is now an additional option under the search menu labelled 'Open in Window'. I have changed the icon on the main toolbar for the queries.

A new feature of the query dialogue / tab is the 'Save as view' function which allows you to save a select query into the database as a view. You are prompted for a name and then this view is then listed in the tables list as a view. This view can be open like any table. I shall be continuing to enhance this ability in future versions.
