I want to export a geodatabase file with all subtypes and domains values to open in Microsoft Access without losing any information.

  • What type of geodatabase? Personal, file, enterprise (SQL Server, Oracle)? Jan 7 '13 at 15:59

    The concept of subtypes is a geodatabase specific concept, and there is no equivalent in MS Access. The Domain concept will have look-up tables as the equivalent concept in MS Access. You can create the look-up table by using the Domain to table gp tool. Jan 9 '13 at 3:12

You should be able to create an empty Personal Geodatabase (*.mdb; an Access database) and then copy/paste feature classes from a File Geodatabase (*.gdb) into it.

There will be limits to what you can see in it using MS Access.
