NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       mdb-ver database
       mdb-ver -M

DESCRIPTION

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

       It  will  return a single line of output with 'JET3' for those files produced in Access 97
       format, 'JET4' for those produced by Access 2000, XP and 2003, 'ACE12' for those  produced
       by Access 2007, or 'ACE14' for those produced by Access 2010.

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. Newer version are very much
       like Jet4.

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).
