    It's not going to be easy....you would need to know the file format for the version of access used - and that's not open information.

    Why would you not want to use ADO or ODBC anyway?

    Yes. Double click the mdb file to open it in Microsoft Access.

    Also see OLE-DB(which ADO uses) and connection to Access via OLE/COM as Mr xw suggested.
