Ways of Opening Microsoft Access 2007+ Databases (.accdb)

Contents Index Previous Next

1. Opening by specifying file name (interface: ADO). Select 'File' option and then browse for the needed file.

2. Opening through connection string (interface: ADO). Select 'Connection string' option and write a connection string. This way is the most flexible one because it allows to specify many additional parameters in the connection string and override standard Exportizer connection behaviour. But it is recommended basically for advanced users. Here are basic connection strings (more examples and details can be found in the Internet):

Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=C:\MyData\myAccess2007file.accdb;Persist Security Info=False;   (Microsoft ACE must be installed)

Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=C:\MyData\myAccess2007file.accdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=MyDbPassword;   (Microsoft ACE must be installed)

Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};Dbq=C:\MyData\MyAccessDB.accdb;   (Microsoft Access accdb ODBC Driver must be installed)

Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};Dbq=C:\MyData\MyAccessDB.accdb;SystemDB=C:\MyData\MyAccessDB.mdw;   (Microsoft Access accdb ODBC Driver must be installed)

Notes
This database type is supported only in Exportizer Pro.
Usually, if Microsoft Office 2007+ installed, Microsoft ACE installed too.
