Access database (*.mdb, *.accdb) parser

Project description

AccessDB Parser

Microsoft Access (.mdb / .accdb) database files parser. The parsing logic is fully written in python and works without any external binary dependencies.


Use pip: pip install access-parser

Or install manually:

git clone
cd access_parser
python3 install



Usage Example

from access_parser import AccessParser

# .mdb or .accdb file
db = AccessParser("/path/to/mdb/file.mdb")

# Print DB tables

# Tables are stored as defaultdict(list) -- table[column][row_index]
table = db.parse_table("table_name")

# Pretty print all tables

Known Issues

  • OLE fields are currently not supported
  • Only a subset of memo fields are parsed

This library was tested on a limited subset of database files. Due to the differences between database versions and the complexity of the parsing we expect to find more parsing edge-cases.

To help us resolve issues faster please provide as much data as you can when opening an issue - DB file if possible and full trace including log messages.
