Short of running Access under wine or a virtual machine with windows, I
don't think so. Depending on your usage, it might be feasible to
convert the tables to a postgresql or mysql database that could
subsequently be accessed from access and common linux tools, even
simultaneously. There might be some convoluted ways to access them
through a proxy to a running windows program if it is always available.
