NAME

       mdb-ver - Return the format of a given MDB database.

SYNOPSIS

       mdb-ver <database>

DESCRIPTION

       mdb-ver is a utility program distributed with MDB Tools.

       It  will  return  a  single  line of output with either 'JET3' for those files produced in
       Access 97 format or 'JET4' for those produced by Access 2000 and XP.

OPTIONS

       -M     Prints the version of MDB Tools itself instead of the MDB file.

NOTES

       Access changed its format between Jet 3 used in Access 97 and Jet 4 used for  Access  2000
       and  XP.  The  nature of the changes included moving the page size from 2K to 4K and added
       support for unicode. MDB Tools actively supports both formats.

ENVIRONMENT

       MDB_JET3_CHARSET
              Defines the charset of the input JET3 (access 97)  file.  Default  is  CP1252.  See
              iconv(1).

       MDBICONV
              Defines the output charset. Default is UTF-8. mdbtools must have been compiled with
              iconv.

       MDBOPTS
              semi-column separated list of options:

              ·  use_index

              ·  no_memo

              ·  debug_like

              ·  debug_write

              ·  debug_usage

              ·  debug_ole

              ·  debug_row

              ·  debug_props

              ·  debug_all is a shortcut for all debug_* options

BUGS

       mdb-ver does minimal checking on the validity  of  a  file.  It  is  possbile  for  it  to
       misidentify a non-MDB file.

       mdb-ver does not recognize Access 2.0 (Jet 2) or the newer MSDE format files.
