What’s better than ActiveMDB?

Most anything.

For instance, here is an article on how to use MDB Tools to export everything from your Access database and get it slurped into something sane.

The only reason I develop and use ActiveMDB is that I regularly run into Access dbs that are in something loosely resembling production. I can’t get rid of them, and I don’t want to keep doing the dump-migrate-report rigamarole. ActiveMDB lets me snoop around very easily, and it lets me extract data with Ruby.

    Wow!! I’ve been looking for this for years!!!

    Thanks Matthew! :-)

    Thanks for linking to the site too, it’s a bit ironic I found what I wanted because someone linked to an article about something I wasn’t particularly happy about… ;-)
