Converting Access files to OpenOffice

An office suite expert describes how to convert Access files to OpenOffice for a one-time use.

Can I convert Access files to OpenOffice for use on a one-time basis?

You can connect to an Access file in Choose File > New > Database, choose to connect to an existing...

database, choose Access as the format, and click Next.

In the next window, specify the location of the Access database and follow the wizard through the rest of the windows. Save the database. The name you use will show up in lists of databases, so you can get to the data in the Access database.

Alternately, if you want the data in Access to be in a true Base database, then follow the instructions in this article.
