NAME

       mdb-export - Export data in an MDB database table to CSV format.

SYNOPSIS

       mdb-export [-H] [-d delimiter] [-R row_delim] [[-Q] | [-q quote [-X escape]]] [-I backend] [-D format] [-N namespace] [-b strip|raw|octal] database table

DESCRIPTION

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

       It  produces  a  CSV  (comma  separated  value) output for the given table. Such output is
       suitable for importation into databases or spreadsheets.

OPTIONS

       -H     Supress header row

       -Q     Don't wrap text-like fields (text, memo, date) in quotes.  If  not  specified  text
              fiels will be surrounded by " (double quote) characters.

       -d     Specify  an  alternative column delimiter If no delimiter is specified, table names
              will be delimited by a , (comma) character.

       -R     Specify a row delimiter

       -I backend
              INSERT statements (instead of CSV). You must specify which SQL backend  dialect  to
              use. Allowed values are: access, sybase, oracle, postgres, mysql and sqlite.

       -D     Set the date format (see strftime(3) for details)

       -q     Use to wrap text-like fields. Default is ".

       -X     Use to escape quoted characters within a field.  Default is doubling.

       -N namespace
              Prefix identifiers with namespace.

       -b strip|raw|octal
              Binary export mode: strip binaries, export as-is, or output  style octal data.

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 to use for the SQL file. Default is UTF-8. mdbtools must

       MDBOPTS
              semi-column separated list of options:

              ·  use_index

              ·  no_memo

              ·  debug_like

              ·  debug_write

              ·  debug_usage

              ·  debug_ole

       Memo fields are allowed to contain a newline characters, the current program does  nothing
       about this.
