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!

Worked like a champ

I was dreading the alternative which was going to be… install VMware, install Windows XP, install MS Access, load the DB, write some SQL to extract the data as CSV, handcode the SQL for the schema and then import the CSV. And since the DB had some Kanji in it I was going have trouble there too…

This app worked exactly as advertised including the Kanji. The app was perfectly priced because I did not think twice about giving it a try. Now I'm going to buy there SQLManager so I do not have to do everything from the command line.

Great APP!!!

It allows you to view then export to csv

This is exactly what I needed and it didn't cost a bunch of money. Note that you won't be able to add any information as far as I could see. If you want to manipulate the data you have to export to csv and open it in excel.
