getting data from a Microsoft Access DB (.mdb file)

getting data from a Microsoft Access DB (.mdb file) Icon
I need to write a script that queries a MS Access database (in a .mdb file). The file itself is sitting on the Linux box which this script will be running from. The program that uses the DB runs on a Windows box and accesses the .mdb file via a samba share.
What are my options for accessing this DB from the Linux side? Can I read from the .mdb file directly with some module? Can I use DBD::ODBC to access the DB across the network?
 

Not have the necessary permissions to use the object

Not have the necessary permissions to use the object Icon
I am getting the above error when I try and open an Access 2003 database. nothing I do seems to work. There is only a MDB file and no other files that I can see. I have seen posts that refer to other files that need to be associated with the mdb file but there are none.

This is a Very old database system which suddenly my company wants to revive. Is there a way I can get into the database and see the objects and tables? I have tried importing the database into SQL and no luck, same error.
 

How to change embedded file name

How to change embedded file name Icon
I know nothing about Access, but have an issue a church with an .mdb file someone previously created.

A Excel file( .xls ) is created by another program and that file's absolute location is embedded in an .mdb file. The data from the Excel file is used to generate attendance sheets using the .mdb file and a "trial" version of Access.

The software that creates the Excel file was upgraded and the new software is in a different location that previously. The reportthat creates the Excel file works in the new location, but the location where the file is saved is under the new software's directory.

I would like to modify the location of the Excel file that is in the .mdb file to point to the new location.

How do I do this?

It appears that the computer this .mdb file is on only has a "trial" version of Access. However, I can use Access on another machine to modify the file location in the .mdb file if necessary.

Between this is running on Windows XP. Other machine with Access is running Windows 7.
 

Network DB path has changed, unable to find users/passwords file

Network DB path has changed, unable to find users/passwords file Icon
Due to a change to our network infrastructure, the network path to our database now has an extra level - from J:\blah\database.mdb to J:\shared\blah\database.mdb

We've updated the shortcuts that point to the database itself, but when we attempt to log in to the database, it gives the error "Runtime error "-2147467259 (8000 4005)" and then says"J:\blah\database backend\database.mdb" is not a valid path" - is there anyway to update where the passwords file should be?
 

Multi-user security in Access 2003 with Windows 7

Multi-user security in Access 2003 with Windows 7 Icon
I have a DB in .mdb file created with Access 2003 (one file only, no F/E and B/E). set permissions etc. It works fine as long as I am using shortcut like this one:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" "S:\YourSystem.mdb" /WRKGRP "S:\YourWorkgroup.mdw"

or open my .mdb file directly.

When I open my .mdb file using different user account in Windows, it uses default workgroup information file, and no security is applied.

but I can easily bypass multi-user security by deleting workgroup information file. I think I am missing something here.

I guess I have to distribute the shortcut among users. How should I secure .mdw and .mdb file in system level,
 

How to export MDB file in the command line in Windows?

How to export MDB file in the command line in Windows? Icon
I can export Tables from Microsoft Access MDB files using the export option, but my users have many tables to export, and it's cumbersome for them to do so.

Is it possible through Windows in the command line, to output an MDB file to a text file? If it's possible, then, I can put that command in a batch program and allow the users to easily do the export for many MDB files.

For example, at the command line:

MDBTOOLS <filename.mdb> <outputfile.txt&gt
 

mdb wont open with double click

mdb wont open with double click Icon
My new system will not open an MDB file from Windows Explorer when someone else has it open unless I open Access first. If the file is not open, a double-click on the file icon will open it without problems.

If the file is open by another user, my machine apparently does not open it (Access does not show up in Task Manager) but it adds my machine name to the open LDB file!

I have already tried dis-associating MDB with Access, then shutting down, and then re-associating the MDB file types with Access. It did not solve the matter.

The file is in Access 2003: I just got a new system running Windows 7 and Office 2010 today. This same issue came up previously with a co-worker with her Windows XP-Pro machine suddenly stopped opening MDBs that someone else had open unless Access was started first.

How to Convert an MDE to an MDB Icon
If you've written an MDB database file, and you want to let other users perform applications with it, but don't want them to change any codes, change it to an MDE file, another type of Microsoft Access file. In MDE, however, you can't change how the database and macros work. Learn how to convert the MDE file back to an MDB (modifiable) file.

Runtime error 3024 could not find file

Runtime error 3024 could not find file Icon
I am a vb newbie and I would like to automate exporting excel files to my access database (multiple users will be using excel so as not to mess with my access database).

I found the orig code on the net, tried manipulating it for my database but I keep getting run time error 3024 could not find file 'mydbfile.mdb'

My file is there, and microsoft dao 3.6 object library has already been checked under my references.

I am using excel and access 2007 (although I saved my database file as .mdb and my excel as .xlsm since I need userforms for my excel, because the multiple users cannotalso manipulate the excel sheets manually because data will be entered from the userforms only).
