The Jet engine is deprecated and no longer supported. If it's a newer 
version of Access it's probably using a lite version of SQL server. 
However, in either case, as Anders said, you can use MS' access ODBC 
driver for Access tables. You'll need to know the structure and 
sometimes there are problems. An Access database is a single .mdb file 
and corruptions occur really easily. Doing a series of writes in the 
wrong order will hose your database. I once was involved in supporting a 
POS system written in Access, linking to ERP software written in Visual 
Basic and SQL Server databases. It was an absolute nightmare, the Access 
databases were as fragile as Murano glass.

 From Access, you can easily access Paradox tables using the Paradox 
ODBC driver.
