ExtensionSmallImg What is .mdb file?

MDB stands for Microsoft Database. These database files are created by Microsoft Access, a desktop relational database program. It comprises the database structure (tables and fields) and database entries (table rows) and data entry forms, queries, stored procedures, reports, and database security settings. Microsoft Access is included with some Microsoft Office packages, but it is available only for Mac operating systems. MDB files may be imported by a variety of other programs. The .mdb file extension was used by versions of Microsoft Access that were released prior to the 2007 release. Later versions of Microsoft Access (2007 & 2010) use the .accdb file extension instead of the .mdb extension. The following versions of Access use the .mdb file format: Access 95, 97, 2000 and 2003. However, the 2007 and 2010 versions are also compatible with the older MDB format. To make the files readable by other applications, the files can be converted to .TXT or.CSV format using a MDB Converter.
