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

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 pro-
       duced 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:

	      o	 use_index

	      o	 no_memo

	      o	 debug_like

	      o	 debug_write

	      o	 debug_usage

	      o	 debug_ole

	      o	 debug_row

	      o	 debug_props

	      o	 debug_all is a	shortcut for all debug_* options

       for it to misidentify a non-MDB file.

       mdb-ver does not	recognize Access 2.0 (Jet 2).
