How to open ACCDB files

Did your computer fail to open an ACCDB file? We explain what ACCDB files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is an ACCDB file?

ACCDB files are Microsoft Access Database files, which you can read more about below.

The ACCDB file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ACCDB opener may not be able to open all kinds of ACCDB files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.

Microsoft Access Database

Files containing the .accdb file extension are standard database files used by the Microsoft Access database management system.

The ACCDB file format replaced the earlier MDB Access database files. The ACCDB file format was introduced with Microsoft Access version 2007. This new file format allows for creating multi-valued lookup fields, Outlook and SharePoint integration, and other file format improvements.

Microsoft Access is a part of the Microsoft Office Suite package of Microsoft applications, providing Microsoft Office users with advanced database software functions. The ACCDB files created with the newer Access software can integrate with the MS Outlook and SharePoint software programs.
