The ACCDB file extension identifies database files of the Microsoft Access database application. These files include data organized in tables and fields, forms, SQL queries, and other data. Access is a proprietary database management system for managing data in databases and developing database applications.
The ACCDB format was introduced by Microsoft with the 2007 version, replacing the old mdb format. The new format offers an extended range of functions. These include database encryption, multi-value fields, the ability to save file attachments and other binary data, and integration with MS Outlook and MS SharePoint.
In addition to Access and a few other database applications, the Microsoft Visual Studio programming environment can handle ACCDB files. In order to read OpenOffice ACCDB files, select 'Connect to an existing database' in the start dialog and set 'Microsoft Access 2007' in the drop-down box underneath. After clicking on 'next' one comes to the file selection, in which one can select also ACCDB files. How reliable the import is and whether this functionality also exists under Linux and Windows, could not be tested so far.
