access2csv

Simple program to extract data from Access databases into CSV files.

Features

  • view the schema of the database
  • export all tables to csv files named after the table
  • export one table

Examples

Dumping a schema:

$ ./access2csv myfile.accdb --schema	
CREATE TABLE Test(
	Id INT,
	Name TEXT,
)
CREATE TABLE Test2(
	Id INT,
	Name TEXT
)

Exporting all tables:

$ ./access2csv myfile.accdb
Exporting 'Test' to /home/ryepup/Test.csv
2 rows exported
Exporting 'Test2' to /home/ryepup/Test2.csv
100000 rows exported

Export one table:

$ ./access2csv myfile.accdb Test
1,"foo"
2,"bar"

Installation

Binaries are available at https://github.com/AccelerationNet/access2csv/releases, download a jar file from there then use it as shown above.

Compile from source

$ git clone https://github.com/AccelerationNet/access2csv.git
$ cd access2csv
$ mvn clean install

Now you should have a access2csv.jar in the target directory, ready to go.

Note December, 2017. Things have changed a little. If nothing else works then, (after compiling with mvn clean install) try running something like this (example of Windows batch file) in the root of the repository (replace the path\to\file):

 ".\target\appassembler\bin\access2csv.bat" --input ".\path\to\file" --output . --write-null NULL --quote-all false --schema --with-header 

Depenencies

  • Jackess - a pure Java library for reading from and writing to MS Access databases
  • opencsv - CSV library
