One of the first things that computers were used for were keeping a record of various things. Starting from 1970s, they have invented a number of different database formats depending on the requirements of the times, technology used and the security needed. But if you want to access all these database files in Windows today, perhaps you would need to install some additional software as the standard Microsoft Office installation perhaps does not support them all.
If you do not want to install even more software to access these database files, you can seek the help of the Exportizer tool that can help you export, import and view these different types of database files. The program supports the following databases – DB, DBF, TXT, CSV, ASC, and also allows viewing and reading of databases stored in XLS, RTF, XML, MDB, XLSB and many others. So if you have a dBase database file, you can use the Exportizer tool to open this dBase file and convert it into a different type of database file, for example, Excel spreadsheet or CSV file.
As you open any of the supported database file in Exportizer, it shows you the contents of the file in the window where you can edit the database records. If the file is an SQL database, then you can even perform some of the SQL queries as you would on an SQL server.
If you want to export the opened file, then all you have to do is click on the Export Data icon in the toolbar. In the window that shows up, you can choose the target database file format, a few option specific to the file format and then click on the Export button. Among the various target file formats, you can choose PDF, Word (OLE), SQL Script, Database, RTF, dBase, XML, HTML, SYLK, Excel (OLE), Excel (XLS), Excel (XML), Excel (XLSX), CSV etc.
Conclusion: Exportizer is a very useful app if you have to work with the database files of many different types. You can convert one database file type into another, view them, modify them and perform other operations on them.
