Convert SQL Server MDF to Excel online

Add file

Input file

Our API uses a .MDF and .LDF file as input. The .MDF file is the Microsoft SQL Server database file that contains the data and the .LDF file is the log file. If you closed your database in a clean way, you only need the .MDF file. If you database was not properly closed, you need the .MDF and the related .LDF file (for example test.mdf and test_log.ldf).

Max file size: 80 GB

Output file

The API will return a ZIP archive of .XLSX files, one for each table in the given database file.

Conversion methods

Using CURL

Replace database.mdf with the path to the database you want to convert.
The file output.zip will contain a Excel file, one for each table in the given database file. If something went wrong, output.zip contains the error message.
