Access database & Spectral Core

Access is a database that provides very cheap and easy data storage for small businesses. It comes with data forms and is bundled with Microsoft Office, so it's not surprising that it is a very popular solution.

We support Access directly in all our products! Depending on your system, you may need to download and install Access Runtime from Microsoft's site first.

Access was designed to be a simple file database and with that come some significant limitations. It works best on a single computer with a single user working with it. When there are just a few database users and database is small, it is easy to work with. But, it's slow and with hard limit of 2GB in database size, you may find yourself struggling to fit your data in it.

Microsoft's Access database engine (JET) can be used by 3rd-party applications, but you can't have 32- and 64-bit Access database engine installed on your computer at the same time. This means that you'll need to have 64-bit 3rd-party applications if you use 64-bit Access database. Luckily, all our applications are available both in 32- and 64-bit architecture and are able to work with your database.

Access support in our products

All our products support Access database natively. No drivers are needed, you will be able to work with Access as soon as you run our applications.

Access is also known as Access, Microsoft Access, MS Access. (related files: mdb, accdb)

Export your Access database

It may make sense to migrate your data away from Access. You may want to do it permanently or just need to share your tables with a collague in a different format.

We will copy all your tables with their data and apply indexing and relationships exactly as they are in your current Access database. In a nutshell, you get exactly the same database in another database engine. Each time you run the migration, we will copy all the tables again. Of course, we have a built-in scheduler, so you can run this overnight and have a fresh database copy in the morning.

Import data into your Access database

Have a need to import data from various sources into your Access database? Luckily we support many popular database formats to make this easy for you. Instead of messing with exporting from source, then working your way to somehow import data into Access, use our tool to copy all desired tables directly - quickly and easily.

Replicate your Access database

If you have already created your target database (by yourself or using our Full Convert product), you can synchronize data in your target database with your original Access database. We never pollute your databases with additional tables or triggers for replications. We never even write to your source database.

Replication allows you to update your target database very often, as we always write just a minimum of changes needed to bring databases in sync. For example, if you added three records to a single table in your Access database, our replication product will write those three records to target database and nothing else. If you deleted some records, changed some others and inserted some, again – our product will pick that up and replay those changes in the target databases without touching existing data that should stay there. Our products are highly optimized for real-world workloads, so data that's inserted into different areas of table are combined and written using high-speed algorithms, as available in a specific target database.

You can run database replication often, as your target database is never empty while replication runs. You will simply see that your changes are applied on each run.
