I would love to see the answer to this one.  I too have a couple of MS Access
DB's that I would like to simply convert into and Open Source database.  They
have many tables, relationships, queries, reports, etc.  I can export data and
rebuild anything else, but a simpler way would be very cool.  I have tried to
open them in OpenOffice since it seemed to have a feature to open Access, but
no luck.
