I agree.

I would:

Install MS SQL Express. It's free and can be installed on almost any 
Windows PC.

Then make routines in both the Access and Paradox apps that "copies" the 
data needed to the SQL server.

 From there on you can use whatever you like for reporting/reading data.

This could be a first step to migrate to an SQL server. Long term that 
will give you better possibilities for future developlment.
