Worked like a charm with an Access database. Saved me plenty of time trying to get the info through some other import tool.

Not fully unicode (at least for field names).
Also his version can't change and save any setting - simply it does not create mdbplus.ini.

I have been using this program for years. I have tried every way possible to contact the authour in order to have some improvements made, but can't ever seem to get ahold of him. None of the comments I make on the page ever get moderated and posted.

It has an issue where if you create a new folder and then immediately attempt to delete it, you will get an application exception, even the app won't crash completely. After that exception, nothing you do will get saved, so the best thing to do at that point is to exit the program completely and re-open it. I used reshacker on it and was able to achieve wordwrap in the comments pane, and to remove the functionality where the cursor gets put anywhere you click instead of going to last place available in the line of text. If anyone wants my hacked version, I can provide it. Like I said, I've tried everything to get ahold of the authour, but all to no avail. However, despite all this, I haven't found a better "code bank" than this one, and I've tried them all.

Fixed. Here's what happened... I opened CodeBank2's config file with Notepad while testing the program for portability. But I totally forgot about that when I was looking for registry changes. To cut the story short, .xdb2 came up in the search results and I was quick to list it as "not stealth", neglecting the fact that Notepad was the culprit. Thanks, redfaced baas.
