MSAccess
Currently i'm working on a program wich converts msaccess to another system , for example php etc..
Got the first result, some output for reports.

I don't know if something exists, but i think it is a nice intellectual challenge to do. I haven't used mdb tools also for making the task even more diffecult. But finding the file structure was really easier as expected. It only took me 3 weeks.
Yesterday I got some first output from the report conversion. It is not much, only 10% is implemented.
At home I don't have msaccess. So I needed to download mdb files from the internet and just uses a hex viewer.

O yes: It runs under linux, so no micrsoft software is used. No Msaccess or odbc is needed.


Note:code is not published yet,....

Elaya
Didn't do verry much with it this month. To bussy with the access project... shall do something again tomorrow.



Oh yes:
