odbc-wlx: plugin to view Access, Excel and CSV files

Post by *little-brother »

Hi!

Here is my second plugin for Lister to view Access (*.mdb, *.accdb), Excel (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsb), CSV (*.csv) and Data Source (*.dsn) files through ODBC interface. 64-bit version requires Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable or 2016.

Features
  • Column filters: "contains" (ABC), "exclude" (!ABC), "equals" (=ABC), "greater" (>ABC), "less" (<ABC)
  • Sort data by column click
  • Free and open-source

nice, thank you :)

a small hint:
{plg}-{for}-{version}-{achitectures}.{ext}
wlx-odbc-0.9.0-x86+x86_64.zip

therewith is more better for archiving and view directly what's going on..

i like both mysql viewer and odbc .. grate idea, thank you for it :))))))
keep it up !

best

a small hint
Thanks, I'll use this pattern for the next release on wincmd.ru/totalcmd.net pages.
For git I prefer to keep it simple for an always actual link.

Please, don't do that!
Don't use this "microsoft way", just name it x32 and x64 - look what we are used to - http://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm http://totalcmd.net/
Also my hint - don't include -wlx in the file name - wlx extension is enough, so your plugin file may have a simpler name - odbc.wlx

what we are used to
Since my package includes both x32 and x64 versions, the plugin already has the same name as others.
don't include -wlx in the file name
I know it looks clumsy but I'm going to use one pattern for all my plugins e.g. sqlite-wlx, odbc-wlx, <another-one-type>-wlx.
I can't use sqlite.wlx because this name is a very similar to official extension but it doesn't.
