Supported Database Types

Universal Database Tool

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 using standard Windows or Database Tour means, without needing to install any additional software.

So, if you need a db tool for Oracle or SQLite database reader, want to convert DBF or CSV data to Firebird, pump data from Interbase to SQL Server, export database images from PostgreSQL to HTML, Excel, or separate PNG files, print images stored in MS Access database, the Database Tour can help.
