The file type MDB has been used by versions of Microsoft Access, from Access 97 (Office 8) up to Access 2003 (Office 11). It can be handled with the database engine “Jet 4.0”. Starting with MS Access 2007 (Office 12), Microsoft Access has begun to use the new file type ACCDB. The latter uses a modified Jet database engine, called “Access Database Engine” (ACE).
