Microsoft Database Utility For Mac Download

Note: You can alternatively open the Database Utility by opening the Application folder-Microsoft Office 2011 folder and double-clicking the Microsoft Database Utility app. The above-mentioned steps are more likely to resolve the issue. However, if it does not work, then Outlook database is most likely to be damaged beyond repair. For instructions about how to create an alias, see Mac OS Help. An installation of Office includes the Microsoft Database Utility, which is located in the /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office folder. You can use the Microsoft Database Utility to rebuild the Office database, create a new identity, or set the default identity.

Supported SQL offerings

  • This version of Azure Data Studio works with all supported versions of SQL Server 2014 - SQL Server 2019 (15.x) and provides support for working with the latest cloud features in Azure SQL Database and Azure SQL Data Warehouse. Azure Data Studio also provides preview support for Azure SQL Managed Instance.

Upgrade from SQL Operations Studio

If you are still using SQL Operations Studio, you need to upgrade to Azure Data Studio. SQL Operations Studio was the preview name and preview version of Azure Data Studio. In September 2018, we changed the name to Azure Data Studio and released the General Availability (GA) version. Because SQL Operations Studio is no longer being updated or supported, we ask all SQL Operations Studio users to download the latest version of Azure Data Studio to get the latest features, security updates, and fixes.

Download Microsoft Access Database

When upgrading from the old preview to the latest Azure Data Studio, you will lose your current settings and extensions. To move your settings, follow the instructions in the following Move user settings section:

Move user settings

If you want to move your custom settings, keyboard shortcuts, or code snippets, follow the steps below. This is important to do if you are upgrading from SQL Operations Studio version to Azure Data Studio.

If you already have Azure Data Studio, or you've never installed or customized SQL Operations Studio, then you can ignore this section.

  1. Open Settings by clicking the gear on the bottom left and clicking Settings.

  2. Right-click the User Settings tab on top and click Reveal in Explorer

  3. Copy all files in this folder and save in an easy to find location on your local drive, like your Documents folder.

  4. In your new version of Azure Data Studio, follow steps 1-2, then for step 3 paste the contents you saved into the folder. You can also manually copy over the settings, keybindings, or snippets in their respective locations.

  5. If overriding an existing installation, delete the old install directory before installation to avoid errors connecting to your Azure account for the resource explorer.
