Panacea Database

Panacea Database


Panacea Database allows you to open Microsoft Access databases. We currently handle:

* Microsoft Access 2000
* Microsoft Access 2002
* Microsoft Access 2003
* Microsoft Access 2007
* Microsoft Access 2010
* Microsoft Access 2013 (still doing quality assurance testing)

Panacea Database can handle the ACCDB or MDB (Jet) format.

The Panacea Database application workflow:

First, you can either scan your SD card for all ACCDB and MDB files, or browse your SD card for those files. Then you select the database you want to use.

The application then lists that database's tables. You then select the table of interest.

You can then iterate back and forth through the rows of that table.

The application also allows you to search for rows with a particular value in a particular column. The program will then display the rows which have that value for that column. The application allows for partial and case-insensitive text searches.

Panacea Database is completely free. We have an ad banner on top of pages.

App functionality is limited. Unfortunately, we can not conceive of a financially viable method where we would regularly add new features to the app. We figure honesty is the best policy. We have no plans to put in forms and the like in the foreseeable future. Even things like table sorting probably will not get done in 2014. We do some maintenance though - KitKat broke a lot of things so we fixed that up. New features are probably not on the horizon for 2014 though.

Panacea Database makes use of the LGPL license Jackcess library which is under the Lesser Gnu Public License. It also makes use of the Apache commons-land, commons-logging and log4j libraries, which are under the Apache 2.0 license.

Recent changes:
Fixed KitKat (Android version 4.4)! Yes, all of you with new KitKat phones, or phones upgraded to KitKat, will now have a working Panacea Database app again!

Some other various changes were made as well:
* Scanning your storage for databases should run a little smoother now, we made some improvements in that area. Especially for large file systems.
* Better Access functionality. Better date/time functionality, better support for hyperlinks, and other improved functionality.

Network access It only pulls a database if its on your SD card. I can only use this app if it allows me to open a network db. Please add network functionality

Hopeless Said couldn't find database each time when clearly on SD card so I put it on the internal storage. Then it found the database. Then tried to do innumerable searches and it came up blank everytime. Really frustrating and such a waste of space I removed it. Needs a lot of work.
