In case you don't have Microsoft Office installed on your machine but still want to see the contents of Excel, Access or DBase files, just drag them over the attached DatabaseToTabFormatConverter.exe

The output is a [filename].tab file. You can open it, for example, in Notepad.

Here is the complete source (you need MasmBasic of 19 Jan 2024 to build it):

include \masm32\MasmBasic\
  .if OpenAdo(CL$()) ; v v v can be xls, xlsx, mdb or dbf files
If_ OpenAdo(0) Then Store Cat$(Left$(CL$(), Rinstr(CL$(), "."))+"tab"), AdoTable$()
