How to convert MDB to XLS with Birdie Access to Excel Converter How to convert MDB to XLS with Birdie Access to Excel Converter

For those of you who are using the newer versions of Microsoft's database management software, MS Access, MDB is an old file type designed as the native format for MS Access database files up to the 2007 version. Afterwards, the MDB format was replaced with the newer and more efficient ACCDB (although you can still save your databases as MDB files). As you might already know, Excel is Microsoft's popular spreadsheet application that uses XLS and XLSX (newer format) as filename extensions for created documents.

Converting MDB files to XLS documents can prove to be quite useful in several situations. For example, you can transform your MS Access database into an Excel file so that you can easily edit the content or import the data into another application. You can also choose to convert these files from one format to another, if you want to create a backup of your database or view its content on another system without having to install MS Access.

Now, I will show you how to perform the conversion process with Birdie Access to Excel Converter 2.5 (Shareware $25.00) by Birdie Software. I have chosen this tool, because it provides one of the fastest and easiest ways you can convert MDB files to XLS format. The simple and straightforward interface this program comes with also helped with the decision.
