Opening mdb files in Ubuntu

Opening mdb files in Ubuntu

I have an MDB document that I need to view on my Ubuntu machine, I downloaded MDB viewer and when opening the file with it the application closes. Also OpenOffice DB viewer does not want to work.

I think you'd better install the mdbtools-gmdb (http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/mdbtools-gmdb) through Ubuntu package manager, otherwise there are no guarantees that the package is binary compatible. (Lots of distros use .deb)

"On Ubuntu 18.04 I tried installing mdbtools-gmdb but it couldn't find the package. I ended up installing mdbtools with apt install mdbtools.

This package provides libraries to connect to mdb files as well as command line utilities including mdb-tables, mdb-export, mdb-sql, etc."
