Compare Two Access Files and Identify Differences
http://www.tigeronomy.com/Downloads.aspx#link_dbdiff

Ideally you have your source code organized by version or are even using a Source Code management system like CVS, Subversion or SourceSafe. But sometimes you need to compare two Microsoft Access .mdb or .accdb files for whatever reason. Wouldn't it be nice to have a "diff" tool like unix users have?

Access is a proprietary Microsoft product so it would be a big task to do this with the ease and simplicity of the unix command-line diff tool in its text-based world. But dbDiff might be the tool you need.

This is a utility written in Access 2007 to take two Microsoft Access .mdb or .accdb files (doesn't work for .mde/.accde files) and identify differences via a GUI interface with the result presented in the app and as an optional report.
