What is an MDZ file?
An MDZ file is a database template used by previous versions of the Microsoft Access Database Wizard. The Wizard loads an applicable MDZ file when you create a new database from a template (by selecting File → New and then choosing a template).
Microsoft Access is a relational database management system (RDBMS) available for Windows. It allows users to create databases and connect them to applications, which can read, display, and edit the database's data.
Typically, Access users create new databases from a related Access database template. (Alternatively, users can create a blank database.) In versions of Access prior to 2007, these templates were saved as MDZ files. However, in Access 2007 and later versions, MDZ files have been replaced by .ACCDT files (just as .MDB files have been replaced by .ACCDB files).
How to open an MDZ file
MDZ files are not meant to be manually opened. Microsoft Access 2003 and earlier versions load the appropriate MDZ file when you create a new database from a template via the Database Wizard.
