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.
Are there any other applications that I can use?
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)
Re: Installing mdbtools, line should be:
sudo apt-get install mdbtools-gmdb
That's why you go the 'Invalid operation...' error.
(can't comment yet, hence the separate answer)
If you only want to view or export the contained data you also could use an online viewer/exporter like www.mdbopener.com.
mdbopener.com is using the mdbtools for .mdb files and the jackcess library (java) for .accdb files. Disclosure: I am the creator of www.mdbopener.com
There is a cloud version of MS Access available. (http://www.apponfly.com/en/micro...)
