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 -h|--help
       mdb-ver -M|--version

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

       It  will	 return	 a  single line	of output corresponding	to the program
       that produced the file: 'JET3'  (for  files  produced  by  Access  97),
       'JET4'  (Access 2000, XP	and 2003), 'ACE12' (Access 2007), 'ACE14' (Ac-
       cess 2010), 'ACE15' (Access 2013), or 'ACE16' (Access 2016).

OPTIONS
       -M, --version
	      Print the	version	of mdbtools (rather than  the  MDB  file)  and
	      exit.

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
	      Colon-separated list of options:

	      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

	      o	 no_memo (deprecated; has no effect)

	      o	 use_index (experimental; requires libmswstr)

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).
