Thats a toughy.. Your best bet is going to be dump the database to text,
then find an importer into MS Access.. Yes, I know you said you don't have
access, but I don't think you'll be able to create the access database
without it. Mabey you have a friend or something with it.

There are a bunch of contributed programs here: that might help you convert the
mysql dump into something you can import into access, then you'll have your
file. Otherwise an odbc conduit into access would most likely be best.

sorry bro, I don't know of much else.
