I very much doubt that this will produce any useful result. Despite
Access being called a database, it's really NOT - it's an application
development tool, which has an integrated database. It has a form
builder, and a scripting language, and a report generator, and various
OO2 may well be able to read .mdb files but I imagine the chances of
its being able to port an access application, such as this
poser-database, into its own format with no problems are somewhere
between slim and very slim.
