Description

Database created with the Microsoft Works database program; similar to an Access Database (.MDB file), but with more limitations; uses a proprietary data format that cannot be opened by MS Access.

To open a Works database in Access, first open the file in MS Works. Then export the database as a .DBF file. Then import the DBF file into MS Access.

Important: Some versions of WDB files can be converted to .CSV files and Excel spreadsheets using the Works Database Converter. However, some fields may not convert correctly.
