Customer Reviews

beware—no more, works great now

I tried to open various mdb files on two separate systems with 0S x 10.9.1. The files varied in age and size from 2mb to 1.3 gb. No matter the system or the size of the file, the app just keeps crashing. As it stands the app is completely useless. all files open fine on MS Access 2010 and contain data.

I submitted crash reports and waiting to hear back. Until then, i wouldn’t spend money this software.

Had some contact with the devs, and the latest upgrade to version 2.2 solved all problems. Blazing fast, great software. Much appreciated

Helpful But Doesn’t Properly Sort DateTime Fields

The app works, but large tables take several hours to export. Additionally the software doesn’t properly sort DateTime fields. For example, it just read the first two digits of the month, and thus will sort for example 12/13/2011 before 01/21/2010 because 12 comes before 1!
