Supported Database Types

Database Tour can work with different file and client/server database types, provided that appropriate database engine, client and server, driver, or OLE DB provider has been installed. Some databases types (e.g. mdb or csv) can be opened by Database Tour using standard Windows means, without needing to install any additional software.
