NAME

       mdb-schema - Generate schema creation DDL

SYNOPSIS

       mdb-schema [options] database [backend]

DESCRIPTION

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

       It  produces  DDL  (data  definition  language) output for the given database. This can be
       passed to another database to create a replica of the original access table format.

OPTIONS

       -T <table>, --table <table>
              Single table option.  Create schema for this table only. Default is to  export  all
              tables.

       -N namespace
              Prefix identifiers with namespace.

       --drop-table
              Issue DROP TABLE statement.

       --no-drop-table
              Don't issue DROP TABLE statement. This is the default.

       --not-null
              Issue NOT NULL constraints. This is the default.

       --no-not-null
              Don't issue NOT NULL constraints.

       --default-values
              Issue DEFAULT values.

       --no-default-values
              Don't issue DEFAULT values. This is the default.

       --not-empty
              Issue CHECK <> '' constraints.

       --no-not-empty
              Don't issue CHECK <> '' constraints. This is the default.

       --indexes
              Export INDEXes. This is the default.

       --no-indexes
              Don't export INDEXes.

       --relations
              Export foreign keys constraints. This is the default.

       --no-relations
              Don't export foreign keys constraints.

       backend
              Specifies  target  DDL  dialect.  Supported  values  are  access,  sybase,  oracle,
              postgres, mysql and sqlite. If not specified the generated DDL will  be  in  access
              format.

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
              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

       Relationships and other features may not be supported by all databases.  Access  datatypes
       are  mapped to their closest counterparts in the target backend. This may not always yield
       an exact fit.
