Create a new empty Access database

Project description


A package to create a new (empty) Access database. Potentially of interest to pyodbc users who:

  • switched from pypyodbc and miss having the pypyodbc.win_create_mdb method (see Note 3, below),

  • need to create a new Access database so they can dump information into it, or

  • want to create a temporary database to help work around issues regarding performance, prevent "bloat" in the main database, or avoid the dreaded "Operation must use an updateable query." error message.


pip install msaccessdb


import msaccessdb


  1. This package does not need the Access Database Engine to create a database.

  2. No effort is made to prevent overwriting an existing file.

  3. This package simply creates the file. It doesn't automatically connect to it using pyodbc (or anything else).
