I need to open MDB/ACCDB files without using Microsoft Access. I found this post online how to open MDB/ACDB without Access. But as I am from a non-technical background so it is hard to understand me the whole process. Please explain me in detail how can I view Access database without access.

If all you want to do is look at the files then go to




click on Download Now (free Version)


Save File then double click on it and allow it to install.  Once you get it installed it will open up.  Then click on Open and point it at the file.

You may want to check Show System Tables and uncheck Show Deleted Records.  Then hit OK.


If you want to use the database and make changes then you download and install Libre Office
