Microsoft Access 2010 files in Libre Base


I am working with microsoft access 2010 files, and I want to try to use the files in the LibreOffice program. I have done extensive google searching and to no avail since this only seems possible in Windows platforms and not Linux ones. Is there a special way to do this, perhaps there is a different program out there other the OpenOffice or LibreOffice base that can edit the microsoft access database files. I don't feel like using WINE to run Microsoft Office 2010 since I don't think it's going to be very stable.

If the only thing holding you back is the stability of Wine, then you might want to give a dedicated program like CrossOver a try.
It does work.

I don't know what all you have so I can't guess fully.

Generally you can run many database files in OpenOffice or Libreoffice. If you have a problem then post what is going on.

The other common way is to export the data base into a format that can be imported to base.
