New utility that displays the content of .edb database file

Friday, January 18th, 2013

ESEDatabaseView is a new utility that reads and displays the data stored inside Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) database (Also known as 'Jet Blue' or .edb file). It displays a list of all tables available in the opened database file, allows you to choose the desired table to view, and then when you choose a table, it displays all records found in the selected table. ESEDatabaseView also allows you to easily choose one or more records, and then export them into comma-delimited/tab-delimited/html/xml file, or copy the records to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then paste them into Excel or other spreadsheet application.

Be aware that currently ESEDatabaseView is somewhat a Beta version and thus it might fail to read field values with complex data structure.

ESEDatabaseView is available to download from this Web page.
