mdb-ver(1) Executable programs or shell commands mdb-ver(1)

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

mdb-ver database
mdb-ver -M

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.

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

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.

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
