speed, your next update

well, here is my experience with this app:
- first I tried it to open a relatively small MBD with around 5k rows? very good, I can see them now.
- next I exported them into sql, fine.
- then tried it on the largest file I have, it has around 300k rows. nothing happened for a long time, so I walked out and did my shopping…when I came back, it was done.
conclusion: this app is very useful when you need to frequently open and do some work on a bunch of relatively small database. If you need to work on oversized database, do it with microsoft access

Didn't work and no onscreen info

I purchased this app looking for a cheaper solution to extracting my Access files to import them to another program. The app "opened" my files, showing that there was a little less than 1K lines, but didn't show me any data. After trying to click the file, app crashed…7 times. Not only does it not work, but there is no on-screen directions letting you know if it is loading or doing anything - a status bar is needed, if it really does work.

It worked.

I had 400+ rows of old but important data that could not be recreated. This opened it all with no errors in any data and allowed me to export it into multiple programs. That's a perfect score in my book. Thanks.
